    hey just here to vent my frustration
    King's is my last hope for medicine this year (3 rejections elsewhere). I am now becoming completely fed up with how long this is taking, it's almost mid-April and I still don't know whether I'm going to university next year or not! Just want to know whether to start planning a gap year or not... just hurry up Kings, please...

    Messaged them asking when we'll hear back..but they didn't give away much. They said that they could not tell me the time frame within which we should expect to hear back but just that they thank me for my patience.. :unimpressed:

    I withdrew my application. (I feel like that might be what they're waiting for -people who have offers to withdraw..)

    I'm not going to go on a rant on anything - but as I've said before, they've been extremely inconsiderate to the handful of us.

    I would like to wish everyone waiting the very best and I sincerely hope you get that offer!

    I rang yesterday afternoon and basically got the same message with a little more detail as I pushed hard to get more detail.

    It seems those left waiting are there for the "last few places", they have no specific timescales for deciding (if they decide to put out any more offers) except it would be any time between now and the 8th May (on a previous 2 calls I've been told "by Friday" when I rang before).

    On that basis my son has decided he is firming his existing offer today so another one drops out of the waiting list.

    King's you haven't exactly shown yourself in a good light with this drawn out selection process. They should have put out all remaining offers before the open day next week!

    Good luck to those still waiting and only have King's left. Think a few others said they would give up this weekend so this may actually help your chances if King' is your only chance remaining and they do decide to put out a few extra offers before the May deadline.

    Hey guys! Since we're all like a little kcl family, I think we need to put King's up on the top of the pedestal where it belongs on the forum in the link. Its basically a thread where people can either give or take 5 points from a uni 1 time each day. Let's go over there and give some points to King's…let show some love!!

      Not really. We'll be GKT students, not Kings.

      So will I, but don't they all fall under King's College London? Like the medics and dentists go to Guys, St Thomas' and Denmark Hill, but it is still KCL.

        Haha that's not what I meant! Technically you're right, but once you start you'll realise medics hate being called King's students (Strandies) and always say they go to GKT. The Kings/GKT rivalry is one of the unique things about KCL

        I can understand what you're saying but every single dental or medic student I have spoken to refers to them selves as a King's student and call the ones at the Strand the Strandies. Anyway, I guess we will see when we officially go there!

        I think what they are doing is waiting for people to make their decisions about university choices. When people reject King's and firm their other unis, another place will be available at King's. This could take up to May 8th.
