I applied to southampton in 2009 and was given an offer but missed it due to illness. When I reapplied in 2010 i was rejected without interview. However I am going to reapply again for the final time for 2011 and the office are aware of this. Last week just gone where I received 8 missed calls from the central switchboard for soton. When I ring back, they have no idea who it is because I work 9-5 as a GP secretary and cannot answer my mobile. Apparently any member of staff who rings an outside number will not leave their department number - it is always left as the switchboard. The only contact I have with the univ of soton is through my med applications but do you think the number of calls i have received could mean a place has become available?? I thought it might be marketing or something but why would they ring this many times? I haven't been able to answer these calls because of my job but could they have moved on to the next person by now and what would the chance be of me getting an offer - i never received any documentation syaing i was on the waiting list either so i'm very confused.

that certainly is very odd. have they not left a message? Have you emailed them if phoning is not working because obviously someone is trying to contact you... it is VERY rare to get in this way - fingers crossed it works out for you. act quickly though - like you say they may be working their way down the list

If I was you I'd tell work you're waiting for an urgent phonecall and try and answer it next time. Good luck!

If you haven't already then I would contact them ASAP on one of your breaks during work hours, would be awful if you missed a chance to get on this year!
By "them" I mean the medical department, ask if ey can check with all staff who would handle enquiries like that as there is often more than one.
