Hey everyone! Congratulations!! I'm very likely going to firm St George's as I live in London already. It would be nice to get to know a few people ahead of time.

Hello All! I'm a mid career change person (coming from clinical epidemiology research) and completely educated in the US up to this point.

I'm interested as to St George's reputation and what people have heard from current/past GEM students. Looking forward to "meeting" on March 17th!

Congrats everyone!! I'm waiting to to hear back from Nottingham before deciding, I live in Manchester now and London is so expensive!

Although it would be awesome to be back down south (from Reading originally).

Same boat as you. SGUL seems so good but worried about the costs!

Yeah London does seem like it'll be very pricey. As long as I can afford rent and a gym membership I'll settle for that and the library 😂 I'm from Newcastle and studied in Liverpool so I'm more suited to northern prices at this point

Haha yeah I keep checking back. This is my second attempt at GEM and fourth attempt at medicine overall so it’s so surreal getting an offer after all this time.

And i just finished my undergrad degree in Reading, loved it there

Wow that’s amazing!! I’m so happy for you that’s serious willpower, this is my second attempt and it honestly drained me so much

Hey guys, well done to you all! I've now firmed SGUL and looking forward to meeting you all. Looking at previous years, I guess there are about ~80 GEM students and 4 years together so hopefully we can get to know each other really well. I'm currently in London (Elephant & Castle) studying clinical neuroscience at UCL. Massive respect to anyone who has gotten in without a bio background - getting into medicine is super impressive but doing it from another discipline is just amazing and you'll be great.

Hopefully some answers in the virtual open day?? TSR rules mean we can’t share groupchats or anything here

...TSR are hot on this though 🤔
That's right, it's our rules!

Congratulations on your offer though.

Bit of patience required until you meet your fellow students in person, then you are free to make whatever group chats you want!

Hey All! Can't wait to meet you all in person, I'm still pinching myself it's so so surreal!

Just hoping any of you future mates knew anything about the "satisfactory completion of Fitness to Practice conditions" just a little worrying what an "Unsatisfactory completion" would result in and how that would come about?? Really don't want to risk the oppurtunity!

Super excited!

Offer received on Monday evening, interviewed on the 18th Feb. It's my second time applying to GEM so I'm in shock!


Still waiting to hear from Notts (interviewed in Jan) and have my Swansea interview next week. Main reason for not accepting George's outright atm is just the financial side to living in London. Booking as many overtime shifts as possible to try and save some money up.

I'm from Salford originally, spent my UG in Wales and am now working in Manchester again, so adjusting to London prices is going to be interesting, can't wait to pay £9 for a double vodka and cranberry :eek:
