Not long to go now before applications are in! Is anyone going to the open day?
I know!! I was looking through my calender and got just a tad scared!
I would love to go to the open day but its too far for me (I'm east midlands).. could you tell me anything important they say there etc.??

Ok thanks I've no idea where I got that percentage from! Have you been to the open day?
You might be right! It's just not the impression that I've got
Mmhm, I went to the one on the 17th of June and thoroughly enjoyed it! The trip out to the medical school felt a bit pointless though - coach ride out there and then a wait just for an admissions lecture, but it was still good to visit the new hospital and hear things from the horse's mouth, as it were.
I applied last year and will be starting the course next month (so excited!) so I'd be happy to help with any questions you have about admissions, the course etc. I was a Scottish applicant so I don't know too much about the English requirements but I'll do my best to help!
Edinburgh is a fantastic city with a great medical school, you won't regret applying there!
