Thanks, all though I probably wont take my rejection as well as you

You'll make a great med student wherever you end up studying!

I cant beleive my post hasnt come yet. it normally gets here by 830, so I can assume i aint finding out till next year..........
I'm trying to take it well, but I just know I'll crumble to bits when I speak to my Oxbridge friends... :eek:

Maybe it will turn up by noon, optimistically!
My rejection was signed by the college's admissions tutor. Hmm.
If I am rejected I think I am going to have bad thoughts of what id like to do to the interviewers.....


How bothered are you to find out the reasons for your non acceptance?

Hey, I just hope they give you all the support you deserve. What's your 1st choice now? I'm sure it's a really great place.

Yeh I'm one of those weaker candidates... 6 good As 3 100%s and the rest above 90 but extremely bad interviews - I sounded stupid and uneducated. I guess it's also coz' of being educated in this part of the world. I'm in this pit of 300,000 people, no proper broadsheet newspapers.... repressive censorship.. no one who's ever been to Oxbridge in this entire country's history.... people living off oil as if it were food. I don't have all those achievements like you guys with AEAs and Duke of Edinburgh! I only have the grades, and other irrelevant things like being Head Girl and a member of the ICJ in international model united nations meetings... *sigh*.. it's quite depressing!! ANd to think I even bothered to try.... It was all wishful thinking. Now I just want to know the result and resign myself to my fate.
u really need to stop feeeling sorry for yourself and refrain from blaming your nationality for holding you back.

Really want to call home Dad's getting a little sick of me calling. Wanting to make myself wait another 30 mins but time going SO slowly. Highly suspect he's plain lying to me.
