    interview went ok, but was a bit worried afterwards because I'd heard that BSMS are really keen on finding out about your interpersonal skills etc but a lot of the questions they asked me were about science and research. am so pleased really hope you hear soon - feel like I've been constantly on tenterhooks for a month...!
    Thanks. I feel the same about my interview, I was asked some science questions too and a lot of other questions! Was happy enough with how I answered most of them although you do begin to doubt yourself as time goes on.

    Hey all, so by now our fate will have been decided. Today was the day that BSMS admissions board met and decided on the offers. All that remains now is the handing them out part. There are approximately 500 decisions to be given out so it may take some time. Also, note that many of the 138 places are already gone so we are all competing for a much lower # of places than 138.

    good luck to all

    hmm you missed the offer by 0.5 so it's pretty damn good, as for chances, it will really depend on what offer holders do. if a lot of them decline then chances open up for you but it's hard to comment on that because it's entirely in the hands of offer holders and we can't really speculate on what they will do. it seems tomorrow a large chuck of people will get offers so over the next new days and weeks, it will become clear to bsms how many more offers they can make, and based on that they will determine whether to offer you a spot. hope it works out. PS you're home student or intl?

    Okay, hoping for the best for us, although I am international and I am not sure how many of us are on the hold list (hope its only 1 or 2). Mine was on Feb 11

    I would imagine many more of us are on the waiting list given that there are already 2 of us so far. Let's just hope people get offers elsewhere and withdraw their BSMS application!

    Oh by 1 or 2 I meant for internationals. Since BSMS only has 10 spots for intl applicants, I am hoping that only a few of us are placed on hold so that we can have a decent chance of getting an offer later. BSMS is my first choice and this news has just made me really sad sigh

    Ah right well in that case you're probably right. You're also probably more likely to get a place that way, BSMS also love their intl students!
