    Hi, I would be grateful for advice: I had read there is a set quota of admissions of non-Scottish UK students and that there is a weighting that favours Scottish students at University of Glasgow Medical School. Presumably this would make it a longer shot when applying if you're not from Scotland? Can anyone tell me if this is the case? Thanks

    I'm Scottish and heard someone mention this recently, but I honestly don't think this is the case. At the most recent open day I was surrounded by so many English potential students (I'm hoping to study Law) and I think it's popular for English. I also wouldn't not apply because I personally think Glasgow looks amazing for medicine considering our recently developed University hospital!
