Hello All: St A was my top choice going into the application cycle. It still remains my top choice although I am still awaiting Kings decision.

It has still not sunk in. Will look at the options later but most likely catered en-suite.

This has been a very competitive/strange cycle; my 3/4 (safe) options did not even offer me interviews.

Hello everyone, I've also only got St Andrews so far too, but it has always been my top choice! Started to lose hope but I'm so glad now. Well done to everyone else that has got an offer so far too!

Lots of people are saying catered for St. Andrews, is there a particular reason for that or would you choose catered at any uni? I would too but I’m quite picky with food hahah

I think I would want food sorted until I find my footing in a new place. By second year, once I find out where to shop, the timetable, my lifestyle etc I might change to self-catered. To be fair, I'm not too fussed about food... and whatever they serve, it's bound to be better than my cooking lol

Hey, just got St Andrews offer so far (waiting to here back from Bristol), but it's my first choice so i'm over the moon. I don't know know which accommodation I'll be thinking of, I'll probably just flip a coin between catered and self-catered and go from there oops

STA for sure as like their split location, course structure, teaching style, student satisfaction, early patient/clinical content, etc.

Yeah all the same for me, I'm 90% sure I'll be firming STA but still going to wait for my last 2 choices. Which partner medical school do you want to go to?

I opted for the English route and not fussed between Barts or Manchester! Both should provide a clinical experience second to none, due to the demographics and ethnicities represented in London and Manchester.
