I am not a first year anymore I am now a third year! (god I feel old)
As for imperial I really enjoy it and to your points: Yes there is a M:F imbalance although for medics it actually tends to be 50/50 or slightly more girls so not a problem for medics (also as a dance I am surrounded by girls so it also depends on the society you join)
Supportwise I can't really comment from a personal perspective (I avoid seeing my personal tutors) but with friends who I know who have had problems last year the college was very understanding with letting them resit and stuff especially since they technically missed the appeals window.
It is great fun here but you should consider whether you want to do a Bsc because at imperial it is mandatory so if you want to do one great but if you want the shortest time to being a doctor then not so much!
I don't get involved too much with the medical school because of dance and tend to have more non medic than medic friends (which is sad because they have all started graduating ) but the med school is great and really welcoming if you want to get involved. They have also ironed out a lot of the problems that we had in the course for example not more PBL exam and you now get personalised timetables (luck sods)
Accomadationwise I lived in the hall that also housed the union bars which was AWESOME although if you don't want to party than they are probably not as good! there are also shared rooms avaliable if money is an issue
Anything else you want to ask me feel free (PM is probably better as visitor messages seem to not alert so I found this partly by chance)
Oh and well done on the 2 offers!
Prospective Imperial medic here - got the offer but gotta make a choice between Imperial and Manchester.
I saw you're a first year medic and wondered whether you'd mind telling me what Imperial's really like How is the accommodation, and what's living in London like? How are the facilities i.e.library and so on. I hear Imp gets a lot of flak about the male female ratio, but also hear that that's not so much the case in the med school and that it's about equal. Is this true?
Also, what's you're weekly schedule like? What are the hours and so on? Do you find you are really worked hard?
Do you feel you are supported? Because I've read some things about Imperial only really caring about their reputation. It seems like too good an offer to turn down, though!
Also, do you do any humanities courses?
