    Guys, please pray for France and the people in Paris - our country has been so shaken up and needs all the help it can get!
    What happened was horrible, I'm so lucky that I don't live in Paris but many people (including some of my family) do and have been injured.

    French too, this event happened next to my school. Thanks god I am okay, and my relatives too. But , I feel sad for the 128 deaths. Let's also pray for Lebanon who were in the same situation 2 days ago, terrorist attacks. Let's not forget in our prayers all the other countries were innocents are killed for no reason .

    Rejection from St. John's for biochemistry, letter arrived today; I had lower than entry requirements though, so I expected it.

    Just a casual reminder at this dark time for Paris, Egypt and Japan;

    Don't get sucked into media finger-pointing. I know it shouldn't really need to be said, because you are all intelligent people who have the wisdom to know better, but I feel it needs to be stated as I've already noticed a lot of unfair paranoia and a horrible spike in Islam-phobic commentary (in general on social media, not in this forum).
    It is a terrible thing, and certainly all these people deserve our help and sympathy, and I for one will be donating to the charities that put themselves forward, and wants to thank in advance everyone who offered their homes in France, everyone who came forward in Egypt and everyone helping to pick up the pieces in Japan, for being a positive, loving person and for making the lives of others more bearable. Be a friend to those who need you.

    Anyway. that's enough of me and my own voice. Have a good weekend, and take care.

    Oh awesome! So you did an interview last year I assume? If so, how was it?!


    Difficult but the tutors are keen to see you excel rather than trying to trip you up and that does come across.
    You'll be at no disadvantage if you have no legal knowledge but familiarising yourself with how legislation and case reports are structured would be helpful.

    I am so sorry for the wickedness that the people of Paris had to witness or endure. I am a Muslim and I can hardly believe that these people live by a religion called peace. Killing innocent people is wrong regardless of context, regardless of who you are. Hope your family are well.
    These people live on false ideas of a religion which originally promotes peace - they're extremists. It's hard knowing this is happening in my country, but I'm lucky that non of my friends and relatives in Paris were injured! Thank you

    Oh my God, I'm so glad you're okay! Stay safe yeah? The events of yesterday around the world were just horrible...

    Great post there... Obviously, being French, I got sucked into the whole Paris thing since it's so close to home but I'm definitely not forgetting the other countries. Yesterday was a dark day for the whole world, not just for France. I hope everyone is doing well, and I'll also be donating and encouraging over-18s to donate blood as well.

    Thanks everyone, and good luck for your interviews!

    Hey,
    Any news for ppe?
    We're probably going to have to wait a while for PPE news b/c we had to take the TSA and they've only been releasing results for things like biochemistry which don't have either an aptitude test or written work.

    In my personal statement near the end I accidentally have an extra word ('to') where there shouldn't be one. I'd had it checked countless times and went over it myself again and again but failed to see the error. Do you think it'll have any substantial impact on my application?

    There is a huge chance it will fall under the radar and/or make absolutely no difference. Admission tutors often skim read!

    Even if someone does spot it, it is unlikely to have a major impact on your application. It might seem like the end of the world, but I'm sure they will have seen much worse! (One admission tutor told us in a presentation that she read a PS with 'Miss, is this okay to say, it isn't strictly true?' included in it - obviously they submitted the wrong draft!)

    Ultimately, there is nothing you can do. You could always contact the universities but I wouldn't suggest drawing attention to it.

    Good luck :-) x

    Are you 100% sure it had the typo in when you sent it? (By looking on Track)

    Just try and forget about it :-) x

    Definitely! I think you'll be rejected straight away!
