    Hahahah, I'm assuming you've been to both?

    Nah, it's not a stupid reason at all, you're right there might not even be a break between them and if you have to travel long distances and miss multiple days of college it all just gets a bit ugh. Tbh I'm not bothered as long they're not all in the same week lol. Haha me too.

    Haha! Are you the kind of person who stresses a lot about something after its over? I'm not so I'll be fine :lol: I don't know, actually, I assumed none of the unis would give out offers until March but ah well.

    I live near Manchester

    Yeah, basically! But it would be nice to have them all out of the way, so I can focus on my schoolwork...

    I like to think I'm not, but I sort of am? I won't become completely stressed, but it will always be in the back of my mind at least.
    I think that's true for the majority of them, but I'm not certain :dontknow:

    I guess it'll just be different for each university, then.

    No not yet, Dundee said they would send out their interview offers in 'Mid-November', though, so fingers crossed for this week
    Congratulations on your Leicester interview! What about you, any other offers?



    On Friday for dates from 12-16th of December
    Yeah I am hoping on Dundee too!

    Just have a bad feeling that my bombed UKCAT may not be enough.

    Genuinely ******** it though because Dundee is probs my best chance. Interview sounds brutal though. 10 stations!

    Oh, haha, that makes sense. I live nicely in between Manchester and Liverpool but I never go to either lol.

    True...I feel like as long as I'm waiting for interviews I'm just gonna be prepping all the time and imagine if you just get a rejection instead of an interview lol.
    Hmm, depends- are you the kind of person who discusses it like a week after its over when it's old news (those people irritate me - just get over it man)
    Hmm, it'll be a nice surprise if I do get an offer before March then!

    When do you think we'll hear?
    Are you a Scottish applicant?
    I'm hoping Monday, but as long as it's positive, I'll be fine :lol:

    From all I've learnt being near Manchester, we're not supposed to like Liverpool or something :lol:

    Yeah, I really don't want any rejections, especially pre-interview, I feel like it would be a bit devastating considering all the research I've done to make informed choices ;-;
    What sort of prep are you doing? I recently read A Very Short Introduction into Medical Ethics. I should probably read it again, though...

    I like to think I'm not. I'm not awful, but I sometimes do focus way too much on stuff

    I have my fingers crossed for the both of us!

    Hahahah, I had no idea this rivalry existed except I know everyone's got to Manchester for shopping but never Liverpool.

    Awwww. Hopefully you won't get any rejections then if you've applied to all safe unis - (I applied to 2 risky ones whoops haha)

    Was it any good? Is it online or do I have to buy it? I've recently just ordered the ISC interview book and my college managed to arrange a very expensive MMI practice course for free!! Woo, that's next week. Other than that, just going to read up on BBC news Health, read up about the uni (I didn't go to the open day, I just chose it because I had a good chance there hah) anything else you're doing to prep?

    Aww, we've all been there an overthought the silliest of things but it's ok, I forgive you

    Me too! Really good luck for the rest of the process!

    I think by the end of this week tbh. I wouldn't be surprised if we had to wait until at least Wednesday though. Yeah I'm a Scotsman too. Yeah Manchester and Liverpool just don't get along, especially in football lol (COME ON UTD!!!!). Yeah I do not want any rejections especially pre-interview.

    I think it's because of the football teams, it's a bit silly in my opinion, but oh well (woo, Manchester)

    Well, I think they're as safe as you could get for medicine, so there's still that risk. I would be so happy at any of my choices, though, so as long as I get one offer, I'm fine!
    I'm sure you'll get more interviews, though! You're totally worth it! :yep:

    It was interesting, I think it could be a bit confusing at times, but it's only cheap, so I think it's worth getting, if only for an interesting read!
    That's so good! My school brought some Doctors and other healthcare professionals in for an MMI practice, which was good, although I could definitely do with another one!
    Basically the same as you, really.

    Good luck to you too!

    But yeah, Wednesday is manageable. If it is Wednesday, and I get invited to interview, I would be so happy, though. I'm going to see my favourite band live that night, also, so it would be epic! :lol:

    Yes, I did! :woo:
    Thanks!

    Thats annoying, wish they would hurry up a bit lol.
    Cardiff but not Barts, it was too risky so I applied to Liverpool instead.

    Thanks! Hahaha! You don't make much sense! Why don't you want more than 2 interviews before Christmas? And I don't blame you although I told myself I wouldn't worry until January time if I didn't get any interviews.

    How have I spent my entire life not knowing this? although I do know you instantly become unpopular if you support Liverpool haha.

    Thank you!! You have no idea how helpful you've been for me in this process, I hope 2nd years going well for you!

    Ohhhhh, now I get it, I don't even care about football so it doesn't bother me but I do know you instantly become extremely unpopular if you even think about supporting Liverpool.

    Well, yeah but I think you could totally get 4 interviews if you've applied to safe unis - I hope you do!! Haha, me too! (But Liverpool would be the absolute dream)
    Aww thanks!! I hope so too! And same for you, you've defo worked really hard for this.

    Hmm, I'll probably find it incredibly boring then, with books, after a couple of pages I'm out :lol:
    That's awesome!! It's pretty good that you've already had the practice and haha, if we only we could have unlimited free courses. I'm assuming you're not going on a paid course?
