    Hey,

    I've applied to Cambridge. Is it possible to change the college I've applied to?

    Many thanks!

    Do I do this via Track? (I.e. Substitute your choice)

    Would they find out?

    From Wolfson to Hughes Halls. I don't think I have enough healthcare work experience, hence going for Wolfson was probably a bad choice.

    Also, thank you for your reply!

    I am not sure :P

    I am basing it on "We strongly advise obtaining medical/healthcare experience as a paid or volunteer worker in the private or public healthcare industry and the shadowing of medical professionals in hospital/GP practice. We look for varied and consistent hands-on patient care along with experience working within an NHS environment." (http://www.wolfson.cam.ac.uk/applyin.../subjects/cgcm)

    Seems like they expect you to do a lot

    But I am not entirely sure

    Doing it as we speak :P I am actually on w/e now, hence I am submitting it this Friday

    It doesn't matter. The applications are ranked centrally by the Clinical School, and you actually might end up in a different college after all, if a lot of successful applicants are concentrated in one-two colleges (in which case they reallocate).
