Fellow Unplaced RSGers...........

by Hannah5987 » 20 Jun 2007, 13:39

Just rang camp america....apparently we will definately know by next friday whether or not we will be going. and its 50/50 whether or not everyone will get placed.......... :?
If we dont get placed you get everything back except visa payment.......... but if u apply in oct for next year, u will get placed next year......anyone else thinking how crappy this is? why did they extend the deadline for applying if they cant place everyone?
I'm readying myself for the worst- the optimist that i am! :D
Good luck!! I hope some of us get to go! xx

Wow. I'm kind of annoyed about this. I mean, I know it was never guaranteed that we would get a place, but like you said, they extended the deadline for applications twice.

And I'm going to be more than upset if I don't get a place. I don't even care about going as a photography specialist anymore, I just want to go.

I feel really helpless, but as I mentioned in some other thread, I've already emailed 32 camps, more if you include others I emailed earlier this month.

I've taken a year out as I'm not going to uni this year, I was planning on going next year. So I don't even know whether to re-apply in October.

I know I'm not the only one who's sacrificed some things to go to camp, and some may well be in a worse situation than I am. But that doesn't stop me feeling rubbish about this.



And I thought I would be one of the lucky ones who got away from this place for the summer. :(

I've not been on here before, and thought that i was the only one that hasnt been placed yet! Obviously not!

What i dont understand is why we have been put on the ready steady go option and were not given a guaranteed place to begin with? I had a strong application with lots of experience, compared to friends with less and who have gone already? So unfair!

Anyone else been thinking this?!? :(

yeah! I have fours years experience of working with kids at brownies. and tonight they said goodbye to me, because they all think im going and I got a big scrapbook of messages from them that it made me cry when i read it. they also got me lots of pink travel items so i hope i can use them now.

ive been wantin to do this since i was 14 and now im beginning to think i wont be going, all i want is some good news and least once this year. everythig else has gone wrong for me sooo far.

I also felt I had a strong application, given my experience in my specialist activity (photography) and my background with children.

This is so unfair, and we're all left feeling despondent.

I've not told the kids about America yet, i don't know if i am definately going so no point in confusing them. My boss is a really close family friend so i am lucky in that she will take 3 days notice off me as to when i'm going. So glad she's being understanding!!!

God thats put a complete downer on my day, if we dont find out til nxt fri im scrwewed my parents are goin on holiday nxt thurs so if i do get placed they wont b able to take me to the airport and il have no way of contacting them, theyl only find out wen they come home a week later to an empty house, thats just reali not cool. Im praying to god i get placed wanted to do this since i was 13 and even though i may not have the experience that u guys have i still wish i could go.

But good luck everyone, i think we all deserve to go...lets just hope we all do.
Best wishes XxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxX
