    If you're a first year then you're guaranteed a place in student halls, as long as you apply before some deadline (not sure when, but it's ages away, maybe May?)
    Ahh okay, thanks for the clarification! Good that we have priority then

    Still waiting on aberdeen
    Same here, it's quite annoying that we've had no official word from them, yet they still spam us at every opportunity!

    actually i think the majority of them are given out at the end of the month. mid march is like the 15th-16th... they don't even finish interviewing everyone till then. And after they finish interviewing there will be another half of week (minimum) till they sort things out and start responding. Last year most people seem to have gotten their responses at the very end of the month (at least this is what i've seen on TSR)... Anyway the wait is longer than ever

    definitely not in one batch. Some of them got offers a bit earlier (i guess those on top of the list) and some got their responses on the 31st of march (i suppose the admissions had a hard time picking some of those on the borderline), but anyways it seemed to me that most of the offers were sent progressively in a few days...

    yeah... in the meantime people keep receiving offers (just saw another conditional offer on the stalking page). Do you think there will actually be any offers left by the end of march, if people keep receiving offers? :confused:

    no... but on the other hand my uni choices dont seem to be in a hurry sending out offer ... i guess its better than getting a quick rejection :P

    They have no soul! I hope things will go better at St andrews for all of us...

    As a change of topic, I've heard that people on TSR are actually pretty smart compared to the majority of applicants, meaning that most of the people on here tend to have higher UKCAT score than for example, and so on... Do you think thats true? And if yes does it mean we have a higher chance of getting an offer (supposing that the rest of the applicants are not as good) :confused:

    To be honest I can't see that that is true, because most medicine applicants are probably likely to be very similar to each other in terms of academic ability. I think possibly people on TSR are more involved with the whole process as they are constantly checking up on other peoples offers etc but not that we are smarter lol.....although it would be nice to think so!!!
