    im on a gap year and applying to medicine, boredoms taking over right now.. i was curious if anyone has ever had 4/4 interviews for medicine in the same year? I personally don't know of this, but then again where I'm from, I could probably count all the medical applicants for the past 5 years on one hand. Also, has anyone had 3 interviews AND not been made a single offer?

    Yeah I know loads of people whose had that. Mainly three of them happen to be between Oxbridge, UCL, and Imperial because they have done well on BMAT and then the last one usually BHAM or Kings.

    ..and if so, how common is it? I've read on here many times that soemthing like 65% of applicants get 0 offers. So most people that do get in, have they aced 1 interview? Just wanting to know the chances..

    I have been offered 4 interviews. Went for three but sadly can't make the last one. I have one offer (conditional on IELTS) so far. I'm currently on a gap year too and applied for 2013 entry.

    I think with regards to chances, you should just stay hopeful and not try to think so much of the probability of getting an interview/offer. Instead, cater more time to preparing for your interview so that it goes smoothly.

    Got 4 interviews and 3 offers! (my swansea one was off the waiting list as well) But, bear in mind that in total I've applied to 12 places, had a total of 7 interviews, and 9 rejections. The experience that I got, through both three UCAS cycles and life in general, plus applying to places that suit your strengths, definitely helped.

    Plus, you only need 1.

    Yeah, I don't think it's as rare as you'd imagine. People with excellent all round applications meet the criteria everywhere. I know one guy with 3 offers and 4 interviews, another with 4 interviews...

    Yeah I have 4. I applied based on my strengths and my personal statement was the best thing I'd ever written. I also already have my grades. Still shocked though.

    I know someone who had 4 interviews and 0 offers. I'm freaking out that it could be me this year!

    So many of my school mates did. All 4 and didn't get one offer. However, they were immature imbeciles and "immaturity" was the actual word used in their feedback.
