    Oh my, I have an interview on the 21st and I'm wondering are ppl that get interviews later in the process less likely to get an offer seeing as though most of the places are already being given out??
    nope....the "early" offers are to those who get full marks in the process.....so would get offers anyway, regardless of when they are interviewed....


    most of the current cohort are not early offer *only 3 of us are*

    Anyone else heard absolutely nothing since the criteria form? Tbh, I know it's going to be a rejection, I just wish they'd hurry up and do it.

    So will the offers being given out next week go to people who have full marks from the process? (I assume the 10 offers that have already been given out are to people who scored 60/60?)

    Thanks

    yes, the offers that have already gone out are to those with full marks....

    I believe that those who will get offers will certainly be those with full marks and may include a few that are just off full (depends on how many offers will be given as there are 20 offers left...)

    So people who have had early interviews should have received an offer by now if they are likely to get one?

    Also, has anyone been rejected post interview so far? Someone on the stalking page appears to have been but haven't heard of anyone else.

    Sorry for all the questions but I need to prepare myself for bad news to come.

    Thanks for your help.

    people who had early interviews AND full marks in their application would have gotten an offer by now....

    I rang up the admissions and this is what she told me...

    770 applications, 130 interviews and then 45 offers.

    I don't know if they are exact figures or approximations. Probably, approximations.

    e: 40 offers, like I said, what I was told must have been approximations. Thanks infernalcradle.

    so you said that 10 early offers have been given, leaving 30 and so this monday how many offers will they be conferring to give out, 10 -20 because i believe there are still some people to go for interview so it will be at an disadvantage to them surely if only 10 offers are left and so leading to greater competition to them.
