    I think Barts/Warwick will hear by the end of January.

    ETA: I wish Imperial would just reject me. I'm obviously not getting in so why don't they just put me out of my misery..
    milkc: Imperial interview throughout Jan aswell. They didn't tell me I'd got the interview until ONE week beforehand, so don't get disheartened just yet.

    What would happen if you got an interview for a date you REALLY couldn't attend? Like, I only have 2 finals in January so it would be the worst case of bad luck ever, but could you reschedule?

    I'm pretty gutted today. I just got auto rejected as a graduate entrant to UEA. I did all my research on entry requirements over the summer, made tables and everything. Problem is, they changed them slightly sometime between then and October. They increased A-level requirements, and I fell under the threshold. Unfortunately A-levels are my biggest weakness, despite having a first and Masters degree.

    So apparently I just completely wasted a slot to get rejected by the computer. I feel like such an idiot. This was the first response I got back from a medical school .

    Oh no, that's sounds so frustrating. I would be mightily peed off too. But please try to not be down about it for too long, you have three well-researched spaces left and those academics should stand you in good stead.

    :console: Never mind... you still have three choices. You only need one offer.

    I got this the other day. Shocking as I actually live in London so it would have taken it less time to arrive if they had hand delivered it! :rolleyes:

    Acknowledgment yes. If you mean for graduate entry interviews, they say in their FAQs:

    "Our interviews run in February so we start inviting selected candidates to interview in January."

    Good place for a first post.

    All GEM:
    Barts - acknowledged
    Kings - acknowledged
    Imperial - acknowledged
    Warwick - acknowledged

    Waiting, but not hoping too much; have very little in terms of caring/medical work experience.

    Congrats! I'll look out for the scared person walking around Although in actual fact, if it's like last year you don't even get interviewed in the med school.

    Hey. How much is not much work experience. I dot think I have much either but my UKCAT was the same and I was OK. What exactly have you got?

    thanks. I thought I'd read that somewhere but couldn't remember where and thought I might have imagined it :-). bit odd that they said they "couldn't discuss applications at all", when they could have just quoted their FAQ.
