    Can anyone join this? (obvs anyone holding an offer- bit awkward otherwise)
    Yeah, you might need to wait until the admin is online though for her to accept you but everyone's allowed in! Just for people to get to know each other a bit better

    I'm so confused as to where to go. I didn't think I would ever get more than one offer so I didn't think I would have to decide. I'm stuck between Aberdeen and Glasgow. I loved the medical school in Aberdeen when I was up for my interview but the thought of living there is quite daunting. All of my friends are at Glasgow and I know I would love it there but I'm not too sure on the course. I wish someone could just decide for me...

    Hi everyone, Got a conditional offer from Aberdeen yesterday at 10:15! I was so elated as it was my only hope....the medicine application process has been such an emotional assault for me and I'm sure everyone else! meant to do this earlier but kinda forgot due to excitement! I've just firmed the offer, so it looks like I'm moving to Scotland if I get the grades! Thought I shouls show my face around this forum since I'm most probably going to be meeting some of you in September. And best of luck to everyone still waiting- I know how it feels- remember it's not over till its over- while there is still hope, cling to it!
    what if u havent had an interview as yet??

    I have said it several times, and I will say it again;

    If you haven't been informed, either by track or the university, that your application is unsuccessful then there is still a chance. Until you have received a decision it could go either way, there will never be some absolute categorical date after which you must assume all is lost. It is not unheard of for universities to interview in April.

    All you can do is wait. It isn't pleasant but it has to be done.

    Thank you so much for getting back to me! I know i may sound nagging but it has been REALLY HARD for me these past few weeks...Aberdeen is my last chance now and it really hurts because i thoght my application at least had a fighting chance, i just want to be enough , i never realized how badly i want this... cant imagine myself doing anything else ...

    We have no idea what the uni is planning. We can't tell you to give up, nor can we tell you to get your hopes up.

    One unsuccessful application cycle is far from the end of the road. People gain entry to medicine as graduates, mature students, after gap years. Some at the third or fourth attempt! The process is competitive, hundreds of young people will find themselves feeling very disappointed over the next month. In life things won't always go your way, how you deal with that will say a lot about you.
