    Soooo... I'm not sure if I can survive the anticipation any longer.
    Good things come to those who wait though right?
    It's strange how medicine asks for our UCASs really early but is probably the last course to give out all their offers. But hey, as long as we get the offers in the end.

    Although, this is driving me insane and I'm supposed to be revising for physics and biology next week. AHHHH

    I guess they just need a lot of time to sort through all the applications. :dontknow:

    I'm going crazy too...revision has become my excuse to keep me away from track/email and my email/track has become my excuse to stay away from revision.

    Good luck with Physics and Biology!

    'Overly hormonal' stemming from the fact people are reiterating the same points - alongside the people 'negging me' for simply stating my opinion. Also, the fact of what I actually did say - it was hardly the most controversial thing anyone had said & the overwhelming response confuses me.

    I was not talking about people disregarding my opinion but I was simply validating and defending my viewpoint which has evidently caused quite the stir - the fact you find the need to further perpetuate this argument confirms that. I agree - seeing offers/rejections can be warming/depressing and I too would like to know, but I was just saying with regards to ' new members' - nothing else.

    I don't intend to carry on this discussion nor clog up this thread with it - I apologise if I offended anyone, but I stand by what i said.
    I’m pretty sure no one thinks what you said was at all “controversial”, nor was the response particularly overwhelming :hmmmm: They’re just pretty normal, chilled replies. You just seem to be acting overly-defensive over nothing, and I responded because I thought your reply was a bit ridiculous really

    Well everyone's entitled to their own opinion - so I say we just agree to disagree and leave it there.

    Congrats

    Do you mind telling us your stats etc.. and first letter of your surname? Still hanging onto the hope that there's some sort of pattern in which offers are given.

    Lmao at how desperate the waiting is getting

    Just thought I'd say, I have had my account on here for ages, and had an old one (forgot the email/passwordcombo) for about 2.5 years... Only tend to post when i have an actual enquiry, but with all the other members sharing what their going through, is it not what this is for, to tell everyone how we're doing?

    Congrats to everyone who's got an offer, are you all going to the offer day on the 3rd Feb? I am sure the rest of you guys will get yours through soon too

    6A* 5A at GCSE, AAB at A Level (retaking B in maths, was 1% off A and missed my offer for Liverpool last year because of it). and AB at AS as well. Lots of work experience, sport and music, and was told I had a good PS (had enough practice )

    Sorry to ruin your pattern, but my surname starts with an I.... Im sure your offer is coming!!!

    EDIT: UKCAT 737.5 average

    Just look at it from the point of view, that WHEN everyone's offers come through, the 'new' members that have just posted, that like me have probably been stalking all these threads for monthssss, and reading the answers to questions we had, already asked, we can all discuss together how happy we shall be at Southampton Medical School.

    First of all massive congratulations for the offer! Another triumph for resitters!
    Do you think there would be more than one offer day ? February 3rd seems a bit soon and I doubt all offers will be sent before that.

    Couldn't agree with you more! :grin:
    And as for this offer day, is it just like an open day for those lucky peeps with offers?

    If I got an offer, that would be a harder decision that you might think. I really enjoyed the open day, and the campus-quiet(ish) town atmosphere at Southampton was very similar to where I live. I don't know why I applied to 3 London unis actually .

    On paper, I'd probably take UCL, but yeah...for some reason Southampton had a certain charm to it when I went there. It's still in the running.

    [Otherwise I wouldn't be checking my track at clinically insane times ]

    Congratulations! Great to see resitters with offers.
    I'm in the same situation as you except chemistry instead of maths.
    Have you applied to Liverpool again this year? I've applied but haven't heard anything from them at all?

    Yeah applied there, foolishly thought that they would share my opinion that 1.3% in an exam will mean I would not make the good doctor they thought I would last year by giving an offer I absolutely LOVE liverpool however and hope to get an interview! Was interviewed in November in 2010 for 2011 entry, seems unlikely I will get anything from them now, but am hoping and wishing!

    Where did you apply?

    I'm not too sure, I'd say its just a chance to get more of a feel of the place we'd get from an interview everywhere else, a chance to see accommodation and meet each other? It seems super early though- considering offers seem to have only just started going out! I couldnt make the open day this year, but went in the 2011 cycle, and am excited to see it all again!

    I recall that there were a few open days last year. I had an offer towards the end of March and I think there was one after that...but that WAS last year! And to those trying to see a pattern as to how the offers are given out , I really don't think there is one. I think they are uploaded as they come back from the assessors - simple as that.

    I know, us resitters are really doing well!! So many people, including teachers, told me not to bother trying again and said I should settle with the other courses I was offered on results day, like biomed/biology! At the end of the day, only 1 offer is needed for us all to make GREAT doctors!

    I'm not sure, it does seem early given that offers have only just started coming out!
