    Aye, I've applied for Leicester 4 year too, just wondering why they're asking for more info from the poster. I haven't been asked for anything yet I wondered if perhaps the poster had an unusual job role and they needed more clarification.

    Cheers though
    sorry, been away for a week so didn't see all the replies! I'm a physiotherapist, so I don't think that qualifies as an unusual job role! i've only been a physio for 4 months tho, so while that means I'll have a full year's experience by the time the course starts, maybe they want a reference to prove I'm doing ok? Also I had two years out between school and university so I think maybe they wanted to make sure I didn't spend it bumming around!

    I heard from Leicester and they've offered me an interview in January. Apparently there's a written bit lasting half an hour but they don't say what it's about

    Don't worry about it, it was very straightforward and wasn't a very specific subject at all, everyone wrote completely different things. They also said that for all they know candidates haven't necessarily written they're own personal statements, but they're not sure what the written exercise is going to show or how they're going to use it yet.

    But honestly, don't worry about it at all.

    Like so many have written above, I'm finally coming out of the woodwork too! I've been following this thread with interest since the day before my Imperial interview, and figured it was time to stop being such a lurker...

    I'm applying to 4 year courses, and this is the state of play currently:
    Barts: acknowledged
    Imperial: interviewed 1/12/10
    King's: interview 11/1/11
    Oxford: rejected (bugger)

    UKCAT: 755 average (can't remember the breakdown - I'll find it later if anyone asks me to)

    Degree: 2i in Natural Sciences from Cambridge, PhD auditory physiology from Cambridge (just finishing at the moment!)

    A's in A level Biology, Chemistry German and Maths

    Fingers crossed we all hear from Barts soon. At least chances are we'll have heard from Imperial and King's by early February. I was really gutted about Oxford...that was definitely my first choice. Ah well. As wise people have mentioned above...I only need one offer!

    Still heard nothing but a few acknowledgments. No interviews/offers but at the same time no rejections. Remaining positive-ish.

    Not sure how to feel, no rejections which is good, but only one acknowledgement from Kings. Surely by this point you would know if you have an interview on January 11?? For the graduate program.
    No acknowledgements or any word yet from Leeds, or Edinburgh??... feeling a little low, just wish I knew what was going on.
