    Congrats! Wasn't there only five external places allocated for that course too!? :eek:

    The choice is yours. Go with your gut instincts I'd say! :p:

    Apparently so! And 55 applicants last year - maybe that scared everyone off this year and I had no competition? :tongue: Problem is I don't have a gut instinct cos the aim was simply a London iBSc, I wasn't convinced I'd get any offers nevermind two, and I have no ties to either Barts or Impy :dontknow:

    Have a think about what you want to gain from your year away from medicine. If you want a year of learning a completely different field of medicine, I'd say go for biomedical engineering. However, there's no doubt doing surgery and anaesthesia will be beneficial in the long-run - it may perhaps strengthen any application you make should you wish to pursue that career path. Also, think about the area, costs and living expenses!

    Becca Sarah - the Surg/Anaesth at Imperial is pretty much what it says on the tin - lots of anaesthesia in it - if that's what you want then grand. But if you're looking for a purely surgical thing you won't get what you want.

    do we get money on monday? you made my day! my account is plunging down the minuses at the moment

    if that's the case, then they'll give you all that's left of the amount you requested intially for this year, because the Easter payment is the last installment.

    AFAIK the date is dependent on you and your term dates. I don't get my last installment until the 16th May :dontknow:

    Ah, thanks. I spoke to a few students who'd done it at a conference recently, and the impression I got from them was that it was fairly general surgery based. I feel so much more sympathetic to all the pre-freshers trying to pick between medical schools now - I've visited both uni's, looked round the local areas, and still don't have a definite preference! Might be a coin flip decision...

    It's not a bad idea because it tells you what you really want

    e.g. if you get barts and feel relieved, you know to go there
    if you get barts and feel a bit gutted, you know not to

    Back in Wales albeit minus my desktop. Alas, I have my netbook.

    Only to discover I'm about 5-10 FPS shy of a playable CSS. Time to tweak into the early hours of the morning
