    need to prepare myself to hear either way, most likely a rejection at this point. noooooooooo that's all to my King's dreams.
    It is so unfair, because I really like King's and it is unfair that some people who get offers won't even consider going to kcl whatsoever.

    I'm hoping for the best as my interview was late, but still stressed out. Do you have any other offers?

    1:3 ratio is the offer:interview

    yes UEA, but I would like to go to KCL very much. so a rejection would disappoint so much.

    1:3 ratio is the offer:interview
    It's more like 1.5:1 (as mentioned several times before.

    In general:
    It's understandable that you're worried (heck, Im terrified!) but over-analysing the situation is not going to help at all. If rejections have not gone out, they will not have even made their cut-off yet. Generally speaking, MMIs will move a threshold down the ranking bit by bit when it becomes evident that everyone above this limit will make the final cut as more scores are added. When interviews have finished, the definite threshold is made and a huge flurry of rejections and offers will come through. I'm just spitballing but I'd say a good 150ish offers are still to be given out. It just appears like there are few left as we've had several batches of offers sent out only over the past few weeks. Had they started much earlier like last year, they probably would appear more scarce. It's out of our control now, and even people who just miss this threshold end up getting placed on a waiting list.

    I've been given an offer on the grad entry course - if they give me an offer for the 5 year also I'll obviously be rejecting that. Good luck guys!

    One of my friends in February did. But I believe it was due to something unrelated to the interview. I've got one at Sheffield and a deferred offer at UCL. King's would be my firm as I really don't want to have a gap year hahah. UCL was initially neck and neck but the deferred offer put me off a little bit!

    well done on your offers!!!!! I know it is really sad that we still haven't heard back yet from king's. but hopefully today. the past week has been quite repetitive for me ( days go by and no offer yet.

    I am sure you're not the only one. there are a couple who are on the same boat as you, so don't worry too much. but I understand that it would be disappointing to have waited 3 months and get a rejection. - but let's hope that doesn't happen
