    No way! Now I am freaking out. I thought the offers would go on until tomorrow at least and then rejections!!
    Yeah I thought so too, so when I got the UCAS status change update I got really excited.. =.= guess I must've been on top of their rejection list

    At the open day I remember the admissions tutor saying that they decide in batches. They pick the top X % and give offers and the bottom Y% to give rejections. This leaves a certain percentage with no offers or rejections, then then repeat this process until everyone has a firm response.

    Sorry to hear you got a rejection. I guess the consolation is that you now know. If you've been following this thread for 7 days you'll inevitably be relieved at least to have heard something.

    Will you be trying again next year?

    Someone send me the dbs thing as well please? I'm in Spain and can't really ring them and ask. Either the essentials in a PM or I guess I'll have to start adding some of you on FB!

    Yeah I've been one of the quiet followers, have been refreshing nonstop like the rest of you guys haha. I'm definitely re-applying next year and in the meantime gain more experience and also try to get the most out of these experiences now that I have a clearer idea of what they're looking for in the interviews.

    Congrats to all those who got in and for other still waiting, I'll be rooting for ya'll!

    And if anyone else here doesn't get an offer like me (though it seems like so far I'm the only one and I hope it stays this way), don't lose sight of what you really want!! Remember why you wanted to do medicine in the first place and keep at it! We'll kick ass next yr

    Yes. But whenever things take a turn for the worst, I always have the most negative attitude. I didn't mean it in a bad way, just wishing and hopefully trying to have a more general positive outlook in life.

    Noo I'm exactly the same! Had a complete breakdown the day before both of my offers (coincidentally!) I just thought I had seen someone saying your name on the fb group and also remembered you waiting to hear about your offer on here and was rooting for you!

    Ohhh, I thought I had offended you in some way

    Same, I was acting as if I already had a rejection and my life was over, you could times that reaction by 10 if I got the rejection.

    Awwwh thank you, I was rooting for you as well and was really happy that you got an offer!

    I've already finished being upset, when the rejection comes through it's probably not going to be so bad for me now. Which is a good thing probably =)
