    No way!! That's absolutely incredible! Must be a phenomenal feeling. When are you going? I would be unable to contain my excitement if I were you; you're going to be living the dream

    It's actually so weird thinking that from the original 400 I'm actually in final 10!:eek:
    It's at the end of this month, it's 3 weeks today until we fly out actually!!
    I'm buzzing for it, apart from the jet lag on the way home...we come back to Glasgow on Sunday morning, and I'll have to be in school the next day for peer tutoring. I'll end up punching the first years tbh

    Ah no! How awful. However you can probably distract them with stories about America and all the incredible things you did. Perhaps turn one or two into enthusiasts! Do you know what you're doing when you're out there?
    All sounds insanely exciting!

    I'm applying to:

    Oxford - Law

    Nottingham - Law

    Edinburgh - Law and German

    Glasgow - Law and Business Management

    Strathclyde - Law (Scots and English Law)


    Thank you! You too!! I wish I could've tried for an appeal but ah well! Sounds amazing! Dentistry would be so fun! You've certainly got a good chance of getting into all your uni's, I visited Glasgow Uni Open Day and it was nice, I really like the city of Edinburgh but not the course and it's too close to where I live haha, what's your first choice pal?

    Oh my! Oxford! I bow to you! XD, I would probably apply down south too but I can't afford it sadly lol. Although strathclyde is mostly science/engineering I've heard their Law programme is the daddy.

    I've spoken to all my unis as well and for the latter three courses I'm applying to I can get unconditionals, dundee if I do well at interview an unconditional and if I do well in my interview for glasgow- a conditional.

    Glasgow is my first choice, I'm like 30 mins away so its perfect. Same! I went to the dental school open day there and I thought it was amazing!!!

    That's good to hear you can get those UC's! I was told I'd get an unconditional for Edinburgh, Strathclyde and maybe Glasgow depending on my ps and LNAT test result! Oxfords so competitive I pray I get an offer, if that's the case I'm going to study my ass off to get there! Oh that's ideal! I am so jealous you're applying for dentistry it genuinely looks fun!

    We've not been told that much about what we're doing. ( Every year seems to follow a similar pattern though - Mission Control at JSC, George Observatory, Rice University, Challenger Center etc
