    Excuse me, my point wasn't made out of stupidity but unawareness :mad:
    I think you've misunderstood. I wasn't saying that or even anything like that. It was in reference to the negging. People assume (as you have here) that someone is doing/saying something to be mean, when instead, they've not realised what they're doing/saying or how it could be taken. People think people are being malicious when they're being stupid, in other words, don't assume someone is trying to be mean, they might just not be thinking things through.

    I am a little hurt that you'd think that of me. You're always welcome to ask any questions you like. People are not getting on in here as they have in previous years but questions are always welcome and no question is stupid. It can get annoying if someone asks a question that has been answered but that shouldn't mean people get upset about it.

    I assume it was you that negged me, and I am really sorry you feel that way. It was not intentional to cause you offence and will in future make sure that my posts are clear

    Oh right ! Thought you meant that medican = malicious, and stupidity = me, because you quoted us both at the same time.

    I understand completely now

    Nope! Sorry, should have been clearer

    Yeah, noticing the negativity, not really sure what's up with that I think we should draw a metaphorical line and everyone should be nice again lol *wishful thinking*

    Don't worry about evening it out! That's effort xD I was just checking that I hadn't offended anyone else really lol.

    So, metaphorical line is drawn:





    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It's become more of a virtual line than metaphorical.... or maybe both. Oh well, either way it is drawn.

    I shouldn't answer this, but I think, it might have been, it could be on Wednesdays, because i've heard a lot of talk about people logging on to check their emails on weds.

    I was told by someone at Southampton that they do it in order of how you score on your personal statement and reference.
    nope...they simply interview people who get over a certain score...and the order in which they interview simply depends where in the pile you are....

    No I meant how many interviews have gone out so far not total they will interview? Surely it will be more than 150 applicants if last year they interviewed 200 out of 700?
    well...they only interviewed about 5-6 BM6 people on wednesday the 18th....so I doubt that many have gone out....bear in mind they interview all the way until mid march...and that the later it gets, the more BM6 interviews they will do as they get through the BM5 international/mature interviews

    Oh right! Just made the assumption Thanks for clearing that up, was expecting a rejection

    I read somewhere on this thread that they hand out offers dependent on how highly you score, so the top 45 get offers. Wouldn't that be unfair to those interviewed late march, since they would have already given out half the offers by then, and there'd be more pressure / expectation for these applicants to impress?
    nope....only those who have FULL marks will get early offers....and that is because they have pretty much a guaranteed offer as you can get no higher...

    but this only went out to 3 people last year....out of 45....
