    How many more offers.. if any are there to go does anyone know???
    Only the admin staff would know I think, although they do it in batches that aren't related to preference, so if you've not heard there may still be time!

    I personaly think there are more offers, since the admission team only reply to a little group of people at once, so we are all being processed in batches and in a single batch there would be offers and rejections. I dont think offers will run out until the batch of applicant were replyed to. I could be wrong, but this is what i think is happening good luck with your application.

    Be careful about overseas Unis as they DO NOT guarantee entry to FY1 training, which is guaranteed if you go through a British Medical School, they do offer you the chance to do a degree if you didn't get an offer, but if it's your first time applying then there's nothing wrong with taking a gap year.

    haha! All the Scottish ones plus queen's where I applied to I've applied there myself and as you can imagine its slightly daunting!!! I hope out of letting others know a few more scots/brits might apply
    If you want to help other applicants I think it's better to advise a gap year. I reckon the success rate is better and it is more enjoyable. Don't drag others into it with you and ruin them.

    That's good that you got the one you wanted I wanted the Scottish route and luckily I got placed on it so I'm pretty chuffed
    Heyy, you asked me to let you knowww, and I firmed Manchester today. The offer holders' day was fantastic, really swayed me toward PBL. I shall probably never meet you, since you're taking the Scottish route! Enjoy medical school, and good luck.

    With that, I leave this thread. Byyyye all!

    Plenty of people in my class that are graduates/mature, I'm 26 (3rd year), and I can think of 8+ people that are my age or similar.

    I suppose the only thing to think about is the extra year you would have to take before qualifying. If you already have a degree in a science based subject then you wouldn't really need to intercalate and you'd be finished in 5years. Nice thought that really

    I had a feeling you'd go for Manc so I'm pleased the day went really well for you. Hope you enjoy it too! Goodbye and good luck!

    Well I'm only 21 but I'm a graduate so I guess that makes me one of the golden oldies ha! Still waiting to hear from Aberdeen & Glasgow so going to wait until then to make my decision

    Sorry to hear you got rejected the whole thing is depressing. Looks like they are making conditional offers now to grads (not good for me ). I'm still waiting to hear
    Good luck maybe Glasgow will come through for you
    (Original post by KCosmo)
    That sucks, I'm sorry to hear that

    Have you heard from anywhere else?
    Good luck Anterior view!

    KCosmo, just waiting to hear back from Glasgow now, my only hope. Edinburgh and Dundee rejected me pre-interview (both basically said due to not great school grades and the fact I only got a 2:1 hindered my academic score...bah)

    Rejected at 10:30. The admissions secretary flushes my future down the drain whilst scoffing down custard creams and drinking morning coffee. Pure evil.
