    It's only a cold and you still have a week left- just chug lemsip, get a lot of rest and come prepared with lots of tissues! Hopefully you'll feel better by next week
    Aaah thanks thanks Been drinking honey and lemon all day, should do the trick.
    Good luck with your application. Do you have an interview?

    Their Facebook page says they had 800 UK applicants for 200 interviews and 50 places.
    They tend to give out more offers than places due to people having other first choices/ missing the grade requirements, so according to last year's data they give out about 100 offers.
    So you have around a 50% chance of getting an offer post-interview (I think)

    So hopefully fingers crossed we get offers😉

    Hi Laura

    I had an interview at Lancaster in December with an interview in glasgow the day before. I had a REALLY bad cold too but i thought it was better to suck it up and carry on. I think it was the right decision. Lancaster is a fun interview so don't worry too much.

    Thanks. How very nice of you to say that I had my interview and yes, Lancaster is a very friendly uni.
    Oh dear! That's terrible but I'm sure they were impressed by your commitment.
    Good luck with Glasgow and Lancaster!

    Good to know our chances are quite high! Was the 12th the last interview date? And does anyone know which station didn't count for our scores? I messed up one pretty bad I'm hoping it's that one!

    Seems like it, from the number of replies you've got.
    People I've talked to (and myself) have messed up more than one station. You'll be alright.
    From last year's thread, we could be hearing back from the second week of March Good Luck!

    A second year student I spoke to on my interview day told me that in her interview, she felt like one of her stations was a complete disaster and there was no way she would get an offer- but then she got one! So I'd say try not to over think things too much, and stay positive You really don't know how well you've done until they tell you.

    hey, I was doing work experience at furness general hospital (one of the teaching hospitals used by Lancaster) earlier this week and got chatting to a group of yr 2 med students.

    Anyway, 3 of them said that they received offers in late august after being rejected earlier in the year!

    Hope that helps in some way! Good luck with your applications!

    I'm supposed to be writing my thesis BUT stalking past Lancaster threads is far more interesting. Maybe it is just a coincidence but I think they follow a pattern; rejections first (2011), offers first (2012), rejections first (2013) Offers first maybe.. (2014). Also, they all seem to be on the 5th of March bar one year which was the 4th.

    They'll probably see these posts and decide to delay the responses on purpose just for entertainment
