    i think its LSE,

    something like 12-14 applicants per place, don't know for certain
    Bristol beats that for medicine already.. over 3500 applicants for 200places.

    I've heard Bristol is of the most applied for med schools though.

    EDIT: Sorry just saw above links, LSE first, Bristol second

    According to this year's acknowledgement email, they expect 4800 applications for Bristol medicine Though that includes all three programmes (standard, grad and foundation) but still... the total number of places for all three is 264.

    I believe Bristol is the most popular in terms of applicants per place, but Manchester has the most number of students and most courses, so take your pic of which factor you want to go by.

    For my course at Bristol there's over 20 applicants per place... totally ridiculous!

    My friend applied to do psychology at Bristol and needed AAA. She firmed it but on results day she got ABBB (and was also rejected from her insurance, nottingham). However, all she had to do was ring up and say "please can I still come?!" and the guy said "yes", no problem at all!

    (she later got remarks to AAAB. but still! bristol is sooo competitive and then they let anyone in!)

    Well it's actually 11, so I'm guessing that's a typo.
