    Just received my letter. I initially thought it was a rejection, but it turned out to be a letter informing me I'm on the waiting list. Apparently they've made just over 100 offers (for 89 places??) and put 16 people on the waiting list. I don't know how to feel.
    You still have every chance to get in. Alot of people in my year were on the waiting list, for whatever reason a lot people don't take up their offer. It's by no means certain - but don't get too disheartened!

    Did they tell you where on the waiting list you were? Some did make it through the list last year, best of luck

    No, no indication of where on the list, but thanks for your encouraging words.

    i think my letter has arrived but I'm at work until 8 and don't want my parents to open it - if it's a rejection I'd probably walk out of work and never come back!!

    From last years forum it seems 16 were on the waiting list and 2 got an offer (from who posted on tsr so that isn't the full picture)

    Rejection today as well, a bit gutted. Also they managed to get most of my address wrong, including the full postcode. It's amazing it got to me at all! :rolleyes:

    Does anyone know if they update it on track as well at the same time as the letter or if it's just by post?

    I wonder if they are just dealing with the extremes thus far. So rejections and uber good interviewees. May explain why we have yet to hear from an offer holders.

    That or this year has been really difficult to decide who gets offers so they've decided to exclude anyone within a 50 mile radius. Letters arriving earlier being closer to Derby...

    Theory - all the offers are A4 and needed more expensive packaging?

    Notts like their A4 envelopes they do

    Did anyone else get weirdly opposite feedback? I scored 1 for work experience (with doctors) but 4 for "knowing what its like to be a doctor" which doesn't seem compatible to me...
