    Why is it ridiculous?

    It's a free world, I've worked to get here.... and I've never said I wouldn't firm/insure Barts.
    lol, chill guy, I'm just saying that barts will give the same offer as kings and by somebody pulling out means a person gets to benefit. For example if i get a GEP offer from warwick(unlikey as i messed it up) id pull out of my other places purely for financial reasons even though barts is my first choice, which would free up space for somebody else.

    But I do IB, so they might NOT give the same offer, which is why I am waiting.

    It's a free world, people are allowed to go for what they want, and I want to keep my options open :cool:

    I agree with Tripo. I've got offers from UCL and Imperial, so I'm going to withdraw my application to barts. Making a quicker decision will just help them give an offer to someone else, perhaps someone who hasn't heard from anywhere yet.

    your an absolute legend, and well done on imperial/ucl(i did my undergrad at imperial so if you need any advice on accommodation/area/uni hit me up). Thankfully somebody understands my logic.

    Not too bad. Got an offer from King's, waiting on BL to get back to me after interview, rejection from Impy :grumble: and nothing from UCL.

    Looking back at old posts loads of people complain about using the Ucas Tariff system...

    I don't personally see any problem with using this to select for interview and it couldn't be clearer for students applying...anyone who is thinking of applying only needed to phone admissions to find out theres a UKCAT hurdle of 600 and then we are all ranked on Tariff scores, I think its good to see a University be so clear about their requirements..... Barts have always been happy to help and so have the best admissions team for me....anyone who doesn't like using the tariff system should play to their own strengths and apply elsewhere instead of moaning.

    Barts all the way ....

    Have they finished giving out interviews?
    I believe so....i think the last of the interviews were given out by the 14th because the last interview date is late february and they give interviewees 2 weeks notice roughly.... anyone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Had my interview yesterday - was pretty intense and I was very nervous. Went on for around 30 minutes. Felt like quite the grilling. Don't hold much hope which is a shame as I loved the University.

    Does anyone know what they point you on?

    No they will give the same offer. Yes it is a free world, but when you go on a forum full of members who would do anything, I mean anything in the world to have a chance of studying medicine, who have been through a lot, and boast that you already have an offer for your first choice your going to get criticism.

    I'll be frank and honest - I think people who refuse to withdraw their other choice when they have an offer from their first choice without adequate reason (i.e. KNOWING one offers AAA and the other A*AB and you don't think you might get AAA) - are just being plain selfish. I believe some of them just want to be able to tell others in real life, or tell the applicants for the next year on TSR, that "Oh I got 4 offers for medicine so my advice is more important and I'm ****ing fantastic" so they can say "Wow Sherlock, you're amazing. I'll listen to you". Well there..that's my opinion - they're being selfish.

    In the end it is their own choice I guess, however there may be people with Bart's as there very last chance to do medicine :/

    I agree with you, but its up to them. I just dont like it when people boast about it, everyone from my school got offers last year and I got 4 straight rejections, felt so bad. Its harder when your a reapplicant and you see first timers getting straight offers, good for them, and we all like to go understandably mental when we get one, but sometimes applicants need to think of other applicants and try and empathise, although sometimes I doubt they know what that is.
