    Success after eyerolling here too! Interviewer asked about resilience and I mentioned unwinding with teen fiction about demon hunters and vampires....said some sensible stuff too but I get too excited about Cassandra Clare novels.
    No way! Who'd know I'd find someone else that talked about CC in their interview! My guy smirked at me but I got rejected from that uni... :/

    Hehe I have been her biggest fan since about chapter 2 of Draco Dormiens. I think I was about 14 when I found her on schnoogle. Wouldn't have been a genuine response if I didn't mention her! I did follow up by explaning I fully understand my mistakes as a doctor could kill someone and my resilience depends on how I debrief then detach when I get home. Didn't need to add that I best detach when I imagine I'm actually a shadow hunter.

    I am sorry that it ended with a rejection. Any luck elsewhere?

    Fingers crossed for Liverpool but get feedback in the summer to help you give a stronger performance next year. I got rejected without interviews in 2 cycles and then got my first choice. Just take it all as a way to develop. It in no way means you won't get a place or that you aren't right for the course. If you get a gap year then see it as a bonus. It might be a very long time before you get a whole year to do whatever you want with!

    I'm a fan on Grey's anatomy too haha Congrats on those offers! Which one is your first choice? I had a rejection from Barts unfortunately. It's a shame they don't give feedback tbh. How did you prepare for your interviews?
    Thank you Dundee is my first choice. For my first interview (Glasgow) I read all the standard med school interview advice books and I found myself overthinking my answers and probably answering in a really generic way - I was wait listed for Glasgow. At Dundee and Barts I decided to answer how I wanted to not how I thought I should and I got offers for both, I did the same for interview 4 but I withdrew from there so I will never know the outcome.

    Rejected by Hull York and UEA for their 5 Year course. For UEA I applied to the 5 year course and 'Medicine with a Foundation Year'. Not sure if the rejection applies to both, as the link in the email sends me to their normal 5 year course, so i'm going to inquire further. Just Liverpool left loool

    Was just rejected from Edinburgh (I'm a grad. Which might explain why so early). It's a real shame but I have had interviews from HullYork and Keele which is great and waiting to hear from Barts still. But if it helps anyone, this is my 3rd year trying so don't give up. I previously got no interviews and then just one (from Oxford weirdly) but no offers. My advice, if you really do want this then look at what you might have done wrong or not well enough and learn from these mistakes. Use them to do it differently next time round. Also working as a nursing assistant does help a lot, it's a rubbish job but you get a decent wage, it looks great on paper and you end up with a vaste wealth of experiences to comment on in you interviews. Ultimately a medical degree is a medical degree so just get it somewhere and then you can choose where to work after.

    Just looking for a bit of advice. I got rejected from all of my choices this year. I also got kicked out of my home, so I am currently living with a friend. I can only stay here until August (until university) so I don't have any possibility of taking a gap year. Does anybody have any advice, keeping in mind that money is very short for me...
