    I haven't been to see HYMS. Not too sure about the PBL course but if I get rejections from everywhere else I'd rather go to PBL than no medical school. I am terrified of getting all rejections too :sadnod:. But I'd be even more devastated to have an offer but miss out on it because of not getting the grades!!
    I've been to see Hull and I'm not gonna lie, its BEAUTIFUL in a breathtaking way :O I'm in LOVE with HYMS, hope I get an offer so badly :yy:. Their interviews are horrible though :/ that's if I even get one :| Their PBL course is quite good (I read the whole prospectus) and it's supported by lectures and stuff so it's not 100% PBL, which is a good thing.

    And yepp I'd be more devastated by that too, that's why I'm not gonna let it happen - offer or not. Because then if I get the AAA I can reapply.

    Ohh that's good to hear! Why do you say their interviews are horrible?! I've heard that they ask weird questions but is there more? I'm scared now

    Yeah they ask weird questions and give you an article, to which they ask more questions from. There's a fair amount of pressure :\ but apparently confidence and enthusiasm, plus preparation, is the best way.

    Who was everyone's acknowledgement email from. Mine was from a lady at the University of York, I'm just wondering whether they all come from York or whether this may be an indication of where your application is being considered?

    Yay thanks I'm really glad their number of applicant's didn't increase this year. It was 1200 last year and I was worried that might have attracted some applicants and omg we all hear back from them end of november? spooky stuff :creep:
