    Are they sending out any post-interview rejections now, or are they waiting until March for that? Cause I'd really prefer to get rejected now than in two months time :erm:

    They will only send out post-interview offers/rejections in March, after all the interviews are concluded.

    A few of us have received rejections already so they don't seem to be waiting until March!

    Thanks Mine came through on tracking first then by email about half an hour later! Think it must have been down to my UKCAT score - 680.

    No. They've started sending pre-interview rejections.

    Yeah thats what I thought, originally people were saying that post-interview rejections and offers are handed out at the end of March and someone disputed that saying they'd gotten their through and was wondering if they'd read it wrong or not

    Thanks.It is definitely unfair how much the ukcat is used to asses an applicant but I guess they have to do it somehow.Hopefully the other uni's you have applied to will give you an interview-it only takes one!

    Well I had an interview at belfast..so that's at least 1 out of the 4!
    Hope they give me an offer! Can't expect much from aberdeen tho..
    Good luck with your interview!

    Sorry to those guys getting rejections today, at least that's the end of the waiting...

    Best of luck to those coming to Aberdeen for interview tomorrow, hope you enjoy it

    Regarding hotels for interview, don't worry too much about being near the medical school - the city centre is only a half hour walk away and it's a good opportunity to see a bit of Aberdeen itself! Avoid the travelodge on Bridge Street unless you particularly wish to be serenaded by a bloke playing the bagpipes though...

    No, they said at my interview that offers wouldn't go out till after their last interview date.

    It was more of a hope since if they were sending rejections (which they are) that they would also send offers since both are usually march.
