Well done! Is that gonna b your first choice?
I think it's my joint first choice with Cambridge, but it's horrible deciding... Cambridge is financially easier for me (I'm a graduate, and tuition fees are less at Cambridge than at the other vet schools). But I really liked both of them when I went for interviews and open days.

Have you decided yet between RVC and Bristol, or are you waiting to hear from Liverpool before making a decision?

Well done on your offer Kisa
Contacted Bristol today and they said they still haven't reached a decision on my application, but that I should hopefully here by the begining of March.

Any Glasgow vets know much about the accomodation there? From the map I have, I presume most Vets stay in Wolfston Hall?

i think its gonna b RVC coz the grades arent as high so it will take the pressure off a bit and the atmosphere was really nice at RVC, but ask me again nxt week n i will probably have changed my mind!!

Yeah they do! I'm in Wolfson at the moment. It's ok, bit scabby, but it's by far the most sociable of all the halls. I have met so many people because we all eat together and chill in the common room, and because a lot of people are 1st yr vets I got to know most of my year pretty quickly. The food isn't "too" bad, it's edible on most occasions but can get pretty repetitive!
A good friend of mine is at Queen Margaret and her room is about double the size of mine and the halls is lovely. It's only about 3 or so years old so is in really good condition. So if you want self catered then that's the best to go for. However it's a not an overly sociable hall compared to Wolfson.
Wolfson is about 10 mins walk from the vet school so vvv handy for that. Esp. as we are only down at the main uni 2 mornings a week on average.

Yeh there is a bit of a difference lol,
But according to UCAS Advanced Highers are equivalent to A-Levels, an A in each being worth 120 points

but according to UCAS, an A at Higher is worth 72 points, therefore, I already have 360 points + ie AAA at A level

they just can't make up their minds!

I know someone from another forum that got a rejection from RVC today. Maybe they have made their final decisions and are sending out notice as we speak?

Has anyone heard anything from southampton yet? i've got an 'application held for further consideration' but wondered if anyone had any definite offers/ refusals.

had a straight refusal w/o interview for Bristol, I guess they had alot of people to choose from this year.
