    Thinking of applying to Edinburgh for 2012 entry?
    Already applied to Edinburgh and now waiting it out for news on your application?

    Then this thread is for you!

    If you want to ask a question to a current student/graduate then please post it in the FAQ thread and someone will try to help you. Please do read the FAQ first though on the first post - most questions are already answered there.

    Have you selected Edinburgh as your firm choice?
    Share your details in the University of Edinburgh firmers 2012 wiki page. If you have a conditional offer then good luck and hopefully you'll get to Edinburgh in September!

    There is no stuff.

    Read one of the million and one threads in the Edinburgh forum about this but the short version is that its essentially a media fabricated story that boosts the egos of the thousands of people who get rejected each year to give them a reason as to why they were rejected. In some subjects more than 90% of people are rejected. Edinburgh has a very high percentage of English applicants, particularly applicants from independent schools. Edinburgh also has a very high percentage of English students, particularly from independent schools. As a result the amount of people who are rejected from English private schools is higher than from other sectors simply due to the sheer number of applicants.... so therefore people need to find a reason and this Daily Mail story goes quite well

    For your second question look in the FAQ thread. This is/will be the applicant chat thread.

    Applying to Edinburgh for Pharmacology. Going to transfer to Chemistry with a Year Abroad if I get in though, only applying for Pharmacology because I want to do pharmacy so my PS will be more relevant to that than chemistry. Fingers crossed it works!

    Did anyone try getting into myed? There seems to be an ERROR tab at the end at the top within EUCLID. Is this normal for all ?

    Can anyone confirm please?

    Also did anyone receive the fee status questionnaire from Edinburgh yet? any idea, typically to whom , this is sent?

    I think that it is competitive as well as pure economics but I'm not sure
