    Does anyone know how important the personal statement is for Warwick's selection procedure? I've heard very important and not important at all..

    I am too, it'll be my 2nd choice after Imperial. I'm struggling a bit to write a personal statement that applies to both of those schools equally though...

    got an email saying on average it is unlikely they would interview someone with a ukcat lower than 2660, so do u think it would silly to apply if you get just under that?

    Cut-offs have been in the high 600s in recent years and I doubt it will go down this year.

    You probably won't get any responses in here tbh. This is for those applying for graduate entry medicine at Warwick. The general warwick 2012 applicants thread should be in the warwick forum. If it doesn't exist then you can make one.

    Good luck with the applications guys! I'm pretty sure Warwick do haave quite strict UKFPO cut-offs if that helps, but by the same token they offer the majority of their interviewees so if you get to that stage you're doing well

    I got my confirmation that Warwick have received my application today, though the email has confused me...

    It states:

    If the reference provided on your application form was not an academic reference from your current or most recent Higher Education Institution please arrange for a signed reference to be sent to the postal address below. Please note, if you graduated more than 5 years ago we will require a signed reference from your current or most recent employer instead of the academic reference.
    I got my current employer to send a reference to UCAS, which was in turn sent with my application to Warwick.

    The quote from the email above, however, is giving me the impression I need to send a signed reference separately.

    I've emailed Warwick to get confirmation about this, so will update this thread with the reply. Not that it's particularly interesting, just thought it may be useful!

    I got the same email, got my boss to write a reference for me. So I suppose it means I need to get my uni supervisor to write one too.

    It's not that odd ifyou think about it, until a few years ago, medical schools would get 2 references on the UCAS form so I guess Warwick just like to have 2 references.
