    I'm applying for 2016 entry and have been lucky enough to receive offers from St. George's, Barts and King's GKT. Finding a decision difficult as each has their own merits and I haven't found much of a difference in the structure of the integrated course for each school. Should I consider rankings of each medical school?

    After visiting each of them on open days, they all seem to have active student unions and similar course content, however my gut feeling was that St. George's and Barts had more of a friendly feel due to their smaller intake. I'd really appreciate any help or opinions.

    Congratulations on the offers! I'd go with your gut feeling. I'm a King's student, I would highly, highly recommend it! That said, George's and Barts do have a smaller cohort size, which I would have preferred over our massive 400+ in one year. I'd consider things like course structure, location, and hospitals for clinical attachments to when making a decision. If you have any Kings specific questions, feel free to drop me a message.

    Thanks so much for your response. Do you find the course generally to be well organised with approachable lecturers?

    I've found the majority of lecturers and doctors very approachable. The course is well organised, but because we have 400+ students in one year, there can be mis-communications sometimes or delays in feedback etc. Personally, I don't think it's a major issue, but I do think it's the main reason why the student satisfaction ratings for the medical school is low.
