I am an international student applying for the Sep 2018 intake, Edinburgh is my first choice. A few questions:
1) How hard is it to get into Edinburgh especially if my undergrad GPA is 2.95 North American system = ~2:2 (poor GPA only in Year 1 due to adverse conditions; last two years was 3.22 average, but overall GPA is still impacted by severity of Year 1...)
2) What is the study environment like? How is competition among students? What is the average study time? How resourceful / supportive is the school? I would appreciate an accessible faculty / TA / Professor
3) Why Edinburgh as opposed to other institutions also offering Psychology conversion e.g. Glasgow, St Andrews, Nottingham etc?
4) What is the dropout rate? I've read it is "pretty high" but need some real data...
Your advice is much appreciated; I'm a clueless international student going back to academia after 5 years in the corporate world and passive desk research still doesn't answer all my questions. I also emailed admissions but haven't heard back from them.
who are introverts?
