    No email - a letter! I thought it might happen as I am away for 5 of their interview dates and they said it might be difficult to find me an interview slot for the remianing 3 days....

    they said something about 1st choice at clearing so maybe not all is lost?
    Anyone have any idea on the likelihood of someone not accepting their place and me being offered an interview in April?
    So had they invited you for interview before and you had to cancel as you couldn't make it? When are the 3 remaining days?
    I think if I remember correctly, a friend of mine was placed on the waiting list last year and was invited to interview in April and got an offer. I don't know how often this happens, but since it does actually happen is a good sign.

    Thank you for giving me hope! No they couldnt find a slot for me to attend... they didnt say I was below the threshold, just they couldnt fit me in!! I am in Goa for my aunts wedding and it was pre booked ages ago

    well done to your friend, hoping it works like that for me too!!!

    Lol kinda dumb in my opinion to be missing an interview to attend a wedding. Tyere will be plenty of those and im sure she would understand. But doesnt look well to med schools. Just a thought.

    Yes - I understand what you are saying - we did inform them before the Nov interviews, but apparently they missed of my file! I am hoping this is her only wedding.. and I am her bridesmaid, and not to go just on the off chance they would call me seemed silly!

    I called offered to change my dates (rather than 10 days just the 4 days) but they said that they had filled their interview dates.

    They didnt even offer me a date to turn down - thats the annoying thing!

    The other 3 med schools I have applied to understood and said it would not be a problem, only BSMS said it would be a problem - but that was after I had booked my tickets and everything!

    oh well will focus on getting the grades just in case I get 3 rejections from the rest...

    I just thought waiting list was better than a rejection - but obviously not!

    On the reserve list too better than a rejection - when I first emailed Brighton in Novemeber asking my academic score they told me that I was most likely going to be unsuccessful, so it's much better than expected

    Did they tell you your score and what score was required to make interview cutoff?

    I have heard absolutely nothing at all form them! Im starting to hyperventilate and majorly panic! Particularly because I ordered a prospectus from them about five times and got nothing, in the end I "permanently borrowed" the one from the school library! Is any body else in a similar position??

    I know exactly what you mean about the prospectus. I kept ordering one online and got given a reference number a few times but it never arrived. Eventually, i decided to phone up and request for one.

    1) Neither have most people on this thread. They interviewed few people and gave few offers before the break. Since the break they have been pretty much silent. We are in mid january, and still have 1.5 months to go, so don't worry if you havent heard anything.

    2) If little things like this make you hyperventilate and panic then perhaps you need to concentrate on calming yourself down first. We're all waiting.

    Edit: If you neg me, at least have the balls to post why.

    Completely agree. If I were one the admissions board of the universities I think I'd make a determined effort to match applicants with forum personas. Especially for those 9-THC posts!

    There's no point worrying about that which we can no longer do anything about, is there?
