    Hey guys, just checked out the website myself and really looks good! I personally e-mailed them and decided the're original. If they do half of what they say then this may just be what we need- a shortcut into medicine!

    My college is already arranging a group.

    Lol!! If you believe there is such a thing as a 'shortcut into medicine', you should bottle it and sell it - you'll be a millionaire within months!!!

    In all seriousness though - I would be interested to know a) how you find the course and b) where it leaves you in a years time.

    Yielding from Sutton Coldfield myself, I'm a bit dubious about the address... not in the best of areas, which I agree does not make it a scam, and also not registered at Companies House...

    also not in Oxbridge - where the organises are all medical students..

    Hmm... You're not an Oxbridge medic are you? I always get a little suspicious when we gain a new user who goes stright in for the advertising kill!

    Had to call my friend up 2 interrogate him, and this is what I can say;

    1.Good point: 'There is no shortcut to medicine'- I appreciate this, and think I didn't express myself well. I shd have said, 'gettin into medicine made easier' or smthin like dat, u get my drift!

    2. No, I'm not an Oxbridge medic but a family friend is and is involved! so u cud say i was pluggin it 4 him! But really just wanted 2 share the news

    3. I totally understand ur apprehension, I wud be the same 2 if I didn't kno someone involved. Apparently it is not a money-grabbin scheme but a good-hearted initiative by a group of thotful medics to help people coming the same way.

    4. To re-inforce the above point, they say they are currently looking for sponsorship so they can do it for FREE! But meanwhile the're chargin only a token fee, to cover costs.

    5. Sutton coldfield: They say the address is convenient as several of them live there, and using a College address wouldn't be sensible for the summer.

    6. Companies House: They say they are in the process of registering the 'company', if you call it that.

    7. Credibility: If all this doesn't convince you (I sure am convinced), then try this- they are in the process of getting a CURRENT Oxbridge College admissions tutor involved to answer questions directly on the day!

    Sorry 4 d long post, but thot i shd clarify thins, pls try it out for urself (even if only just to ask questions). This is just a group of oxbridge medics tryin 2 do somethin 2 help, don't personally c nethin wrong wif that. I'm suprised it hasn't been done earlier.
