Just an update on my PhD application progress. I've now had all three of my planned interviews and have heard back from two of them. Both Warwick and UCL want to offer me a PhD and I'm still waiting to hear from Imperial College. Funnily enough, both the offers I have so far are involved with the RAL. The Warwick one is an LHCb project (I blogged about it before) and the UCL one is an industrial placement where the company involved is the RAL.
My girlfriend, Rachel, also has an offer from Warwick for an Astrophysics PhD so it's likely that I'll be staying here but there's still some other things to consider.
No matter which one I decide upon, I'm excited to have something sorted out for the next few years.
