    Hey guys, I got a reply from the Kings GEP today- an offer for the 4 year course which I was pretty surprised about. So it appears their reply cycle is definately underway now, so hopefully everyone hears from them soon.

    Omar Little - is that a reference to the wire and possibly the greatest character in any show ever?

    "I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right? " LOVE IT

    Roystonvesey - Good spot, it is indeed a 'wire' reference. The court scene that quote comes from is great.

    Does anyone have an interview for Swansea on Monday? I've been calling their GEM department for a week and can't get hold of anyone. I don't have an itinerary so I've no idea when they want me there.

    I had to be at mine at 11, at a certain building (can't remember the name sorry)

    No problem itzme,
    My degree was Engineering Science at Oxford (2:1).
    UKCAT was 805.
    I graduated in 2008 and worked in the city for a year and have been a Medical Physicist/Engineer in the NHS since.
    Work experience is St John Ambulance, volunteering with the elderly in my community, and a couple of short shadowing stints with a GP and a radiologist.
    I think that is about it. Have I missed of any obvious information?

    Not sure if my app is typical for kings or not.

    You're from Oxford, got an insanely high UKCAT score and worked in the city... WOW

    I feel miserable about my profile now

    To be honest I think the whole city thing was a bit of a hinderance. It basically raised the question that I might be a heartless/mercenary ****. Especially as my leaving the city coincided with the year of reduced bonusses and redundancies etc. I think the UKCAT kinda only matters to the point you make a set cut off level the uni sets. I would also say my profile was a bit light on work experience (which was the cambridge feedback).

    Don't worry guys, I got in with much less than that. It's all on getting the UKCAT cut-off and doing well at interview.

    I have a feeling they love extra-curricular stuff too like societies. Most of my interview I just chatted about non-academic stuff...

    Just posting how it is going for me, I got rejected from KCL yesterday (finally) they kept me waiting for ages, the only reason given on MyApplication was competition/applicant volume. Imperial rejected me last month on UKCAT.

    Had an interview at Newcastle which (hopefully) went ok, and I am going to Warwick selection centre next month.

    Hi all,
    Congrats to all offers!
    Anybody still waiting to hear from KCL GPEP (who had an interview)?
    Seems like offers came out Wednesday and rejections Friday...?
    I haven't heard either way - doesn't seem promising :-(

    I will not apply to very competitive medical schools. they all are, but the ones in London are quite a challenge!
