    Has anyone had an offer from Kings College London yet?!
    For which subject?

    I don't see the point in reapplying. I won't be kissing UK's ass so they kindly accept me
    How can you be so sure that a university abroad will accept you? :holmes:

    I sent mine like 6 minutes after the 6pm deadline (I know.. I left it late) but I received 3 unconditional offers from Queen Mary, Brunel and Westminster. Still waiting to hear from King's and Greenwich.

    What about you?


    Posted fromTSR Mobile
    Woah that's good! Do you have all your A level grades already or just AS level?

    I applied on the deadline date but I was late in sending de Montfort some stuff... Whoops :/
    Anyways conditional offers from Brighton and Hertfordshire! Withdrew from Central Lancashire...

    it is kissing their ass. UKCAT, personal statement, more than great grades, interview...maybe we should also dance samba in front of selection team to get in?

    As in, you're more likely to get in, or that they select the most able candidates to become the doctors of the future?

    Each part of the application is designed to show yourself off. How much you "kiss ass" is up to you. Of course there are flaws in any admissions system. Personal preference (of the interviewer) in interview is the most fundamental flaw, but it's something that I guess is needed to wean out the psychos and more importantly, those who might not be seen to be cut out for the work.

    Can I just point out that you quoted that you "****ed up" your interview, so what do you expect? I'm sure you're very able of doing the course you've applied to, and the unis obviously thought so too if they gave you an interview, but you can't just expect them to give you an offer, especially if you say you "****ed" it up.

    This is the quote I was talking about, I was just surprised at how 'anti-U.K' you were about the selection process when you felt you messed up the interview. However, I would totally understand if you were frustrated by your rejections. You are obviously capable of doing well on the course, otherwise they wouldn't give you an interview. At least if you do decide to reapply, you'll know what to expect.

    If you don't mind me asking, which universities did you apply too? because obviously every university is different, so I wouldn't disregard the UK as a whole

    Without sounding too horrible towards her, I wouldn't give her the time of day. She basically believes that anyone who studies social sciences/arts/humanities at university will end up working for McDonald's etc and that those subjects are useless as they won't contribute towards society in any way

    It's not kissing their ass. It's making the most of showing what skills you have and assessing whether they think you're fit to be a doctor. Stop whining. You need impressive grades to stand a chance at a top uni for medicine and good grades for lower down ones. A large % of medicine applicants get rejected every year but they don't get all bitter about it. Interview, PS and more than great grades apply for a lot of courses and wait 'til you even touch STEP.

    Where did she say this? :O I saw she said she applied for medicine but maybe I missed something. That's a very silly thing for her to say as all those departments have contributed so much :O

    Ahh don't worry, I just found the thread with her ignorant comments. Very amusing. I'd like to think that if she spoke like that in her interviews, I'm not surprised she got rejected. She obviously doesn't know what the real world has for her.

    I'm starting to stress out because I've only got one offer and just want to know and feels like all my friends have heard back from all 5 now...
    My current situation is:
    University of Westminster - offer received Feb 16th
    Southampton Solent University - interview on 10th March after I had to postpone it due to being in hospital
    UCA (Epsom) - interview on 9th April (again, had to postpone due to my unplanned hospital stay!)
    University of Winchester - still waiting
    UAL (London College of Fashion) - still waiting

    I'm hoping to get offers from LCF and UCA and I'd hope to have LCF as my firm & UCA as my insurance but I read that if you applied before the 15th Jan deadline (which I did) then UCAS ask the universities to make their decision by 31st March...is this true? Obviously, I'm not expecting anything from UCA as my interview is scheduled after!

    Has anyone else dealt with any of these uni's and when to expect offers and how long the wait is after interviews?

    Thank you!

    Thanks I did a Btec (Btec extended diploma in Applied Science) and I already have my grades. Got D*DD. Hope I get an offer from King's by the end of this month :fingerscrossed:

    Congrats on your offers and hopefully you'll hear from de Montfort soon.

    What grades are you predicted and did you apply before the 6pm deadline? If you don't mind me asking.

    Aah and I'm sitting here thinking I'll be hearing from my last 2 unis by the 31st march (I applied a couple mins after the deadline). Well I guess the news from king's won't be coming soon
