    That is a good UKCAT score and there are a lot people rejecting SGUL so I would say hang tight there is still hope.
    yes It's good to remain hopeful, but judging from last year, very few people on the waiting list get offers, so my advice would be to begin planning a gap year, just in case you don't get the offer.

    Over 50% of the people on the waiting list got offers last year.

    It was 100% for 2013 entry. I have also heard they had to call people they had initially rejected (post interview ) to offer places.

    I'd say they placed far too little people on the waiting list for 2013 entry. Then they placed a bit too many people during the 2014 entry cycle.

    Now for 2015 entry, they will not have as many people on the waiting list as last year, so about 70% of the people on the waiting list will get offers.

    For 2013 entry, the FOI is on the St George's website and various other places on the internet. You can search for it.

    For 2014 entry, I have seen an FOI. But it is not on the internet. I guess you could send a FOI request to conform. However, I am pretty sure it's greater than 50%.

    Do any of you worry about St georges lack of prestige or reputation? Everyone I know has either never heard of SG or thinks it's an easy med school to get into. I know this means nothing in practical terms as u end up becoming a doctor but I'd still like to have some pride in my chosen uni

    I do sometimes worry to be perfectly honest which is why I still havent firmed. It is really annoying, on one hand London is the place to be, it'll always be alive and the SGUL students love it there, on the other hand it isnt really moving up in the league tables (even though it makes no difference).

    In terms of clinical training Georges is awesome but I agree with you. Where is your other offer from?

    UEA and HYMS although HYMS is most definitely a nah. Yeah the fact that SGUL is based in the hospital itself is amazing. I also plan to write the USMLE after and try for America so the "University of London" branding might help so also need to account for that.

    Georges trumps all of those unis. UoL degree is worth much more than an MBBCh which UEA gives because unlike the UK, the U.S. Is elitist and puts more emphasis on prestige of uni.

    Yeah but after talking to a few US doctors it turns out that they don't really care which uni you're from as long you have a good USMLE and can do well in the interviews. I most probably will firm it in the end though because I love London too much to leave it.
