    With the open day next week on the 16th, I do expect decisions to be made this week for most if not all of those still waiting. If they did decide they wanted to top up their "offer group" further later, then they can always contact those they have rejected which I have known universities to do before. King's actually had a few places available after results day last year, so suspect they are being more careful this year to get the offer numbers right.
    Lets hope you're right

    I rang admissions last week, was told Friday or Monday but nothing received, will wait one more day and then ring again. Must be close now surely for those still waiting to receive a decision.
    Please let us know what thy say if you happen to contact them

    This situation is getting somewhat ridiculous. I have been waiting for 4 months now.

    I'm not writing this in order to plea for sympathy but simply to vent my frustrations.

    How can I move forward with my life when GKT has neither rejected or given me an offer.

    This is like limbo but for medical school admissions.

    Oh well back to work at Maccies then, my shift starts in 5...

    EXACTLY! I've decided if I don't hear anything by Friday I'll withdraw from kings so I can move on and firm my other choices. I need to get the ball rolling, don't like being at someone else's mercy.

    Well, you might still get an offer from GKT .... at the end of may.

    But Notts is pretty great, I wish I had applied there.

    I asked this a few times at the offer holders open day and basically it seems like the old dean of medical education just didn't care and they messed up majorly a few times and they didn't listen to student feedback very much, but the new dean seems really keen on changing that and they actually explained a lot of ways they are improving the course and even the way the uni communicates with students because of student feedback

    I only arrived in time for the first talk which I think was at about 12:30? If you want to do a tour of Guy's campus and accommodation though I would recommend doing that before the first talk because the time they give you to go around the stations and ask questions isn't very long and the stations were the most helpful part. I think you can just wonder in whenever though

    Yeah course. First time ever I've known kings to use track and not the portal for offers.

    Rang yesterday, brief conversation but now looking by end of week for any remaining decisions for those still waiting. Considering King's as a open day next week they really need to tell all those who are waiting for decisions before the day so they have the opportunity to attend. Suspect plenty of those with offers elsewhere will give up on King's if they have not heard by then and select another offer so it is not in the interest of King's to keep applicants waiting. Those without offers and waiting to hear will clearly have different view point on that!

    Kings are really taking the biscuit! If I don't hear anything today I've decided I'll withdraw and firm/insure my other offers. Can't be doing with all this waiting...
