    We secretly want to go to Manchester but don't like the PBL of their preclinicals :ninja:

    J/K

    I wish St Andrews had clinicals themselves, would be cool to stay there 6 years
    True!

    I'm sure that's not true I was convinced St.A were going to reject my any day but then I found an interview invite on tuesday Shows they're still being given out! My interview is on the 9th of March and I think they interview later than that...

    the last interview date is like the 18th march or then abouts, and interviews are usually given with at least two weeks warning, so in theory interviews could then be still given out until early march.

    I'm just curious, but why is it that, proportionally, more English students apply to St Andrew's than any other Scottish university? Obviously it's a great uni, but so are Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as all the great english ones. It's a good thing that so many people from different backgrounds can mix at the one uni, but it's odd that quite so many english students choose St Andrew's as their "Scottish choice" if you like :P Just curious!
    St Andrews is considered very elite from a southerners point of view, Glasgow isn't seen as such a great uni, mainly probs because it has a reputation of crime! Edinburgh is really liked but they are prejudice against southerners, the times did an article on it saying how bias Edinburgh are to Scottish students, I think they say it on the website as well.

    Interesting :P I'd say in Scotland (or at least in my school) Glasgow and Edinburgh are considered top, with Edinburgh coming first. St Andrew's is an anomaly to most people, probably because of it's isolated location and it's apparent fetish for Southerners :P It's kind of seen as the "posh uni" if you know what I mean! But having visited myself it seems fantastic, I'm not sure why more people I know don't apply to it :P Haha, I thought you might say that about Glasgow :P As a native Glaswegian I can tell you that it's actually pretty friendly. Or equally as a native Glaswegian I could "persuade" you that it's friendly by force!

    Any chance you could persuade your friends to withdraw their applications to make it easier for us?

    I suppose its all about where you come from. People think manchester uni is far from where i live haha, so let alone scotland!
    I dont think i have ever known someone to go to glasgow uni haha
    I think St Andrews is liked because it is posh and has the oxbridge appeal, also because its fairly english haha
    I have to say i like glasgow though, the uni looks awesome there!!! I would love to go there for my clinical years.

    Its weird because i never know northerners and the scottish to apply to places like southampton, bath and cardiff, yet those are like the some of the most popular from where i come from, i think everyone of my friends applied to one of those unis haha

    I think it's to do with tuition fees for Scottish people at least. It's unusual for a lot of Scottish applicants to apply in England because uni's free if we stay in Scotland, but we'd need to pay for it if we move south, whereas English students have to pay anyways and so will just pick the ones they like

    Haha, St Andrew's is far away from me, and I live in Scotland! How are you planning to get up there for your interview? It was about a 2 hour drive from Glasgow, but I'd imagine you'll get a hotel room or something?

    It's incredible popular with the English, a lot of newspapers eg the times for the blurb bit about St Andrews etc refers to it as the English university in Scotland because of it's popularity with the English.

    True, I forget that sometimes. By the way it's so unfair!! Haha I want free tuition!!! Cardiff is also now going to give free tuition fr the welsh, it seems the English are the only loosing out here!

    Well I'm going to Drive to Bristol and then fly up to Edinburgh and then hire a car because we are lazy haha. If we drove, it would take probs about 10/11 hours :/ Yea we are going to stay up there for three days, make a little holiday of it haha and go to Edinburgh as well
