I’ve got no idea how they allocate - I put my choices in on the first day and got my 3rd choice

No it's literally just random. Basically, don't put down somewhere you can't afford or wouldn't want to go, but do try and use all 5 choices.
If you get something that isn't one of your choices (which is fairly rare) >99% of the time you'll get Acton because there's so many spaces.

wait do we need to send forms b4 we firm or can we firm then fill in forms
(Original post by Bigreshe)
Has any1 already firmed imperial? If so have u sent in any forms yet?
I've already firmed Imperial. I don't think you need to wait for the DBS forms to be sent out before firming as it essentially works like any other condition of your offer. As in, you can firm Imperial before you achieve your A levels and any other condition of your offer.

Just be aware of the differing deadlines for everything but I think they'll send all of this information out in the offer holder pack.

In a scenario where we get given accomodation we don't like, are we free to back out of it?

We’re not actually sure what the cut off is yet although many have speculated. Imperial have said:

“The BMAT cut off scores for 2021 admissions will be available after 01 April 2021.”

You can find this response in the following FOI request: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...tics_for_20_21

Yes of course - you don’t have to sign the contract! I know a couple of people who decided to stay at home rather than live in Acton.

I put ww 3rd and got ww. Tbh though, the rooms were nice, and apart from a couple of my flatmates being a bit douchey I was quite happy there - in flats of 8 there are always going to be some people you get along with better than others. The plus side of it being bigger was there was always someone to travel to and from uni and events with - and I actually didn't mind the travel. It was nice to walk through hyde park some days. I loved having my own bathroom and the wifi was decent.

would you choose woodward again if u were a first yr, considering the convenience of having accommodation right next to the campus?

Tbh i probably would - although my flatmates this year weren’t in my flat last year I met them travelling in from Acton, the cost difference was helpful. I think that wherever you get there are pluses and minuses but it just becomes your life and you adapt. I don't think its a big deal, the main thing is the course.

I mean, not necessarily, people don’t always get the biggest hall they put down? Someone has to be in Pembridge

hii i got my imperial offer a few days ago and i was wondering if any current/ex imperial med students could answer some of my questions? does the fact that imperial is quite spread out bother u, do u still feel like u get that close-knit feel w the rest of the year or does it feel more disconnected? does the commute to campus/hospitals make it feel more like a job than uni? and also i’ve heard imperial’s library isnt that great and that it’s always packed, is that true? and was it easy for u to make friends or did it feel like everyone’s kinda reserved? sorry if this is long, i’m kinda stuck between imperial and a different med school so if anyone is able to answer i’d be rlly rlly grateful

Do you mind saying which other medical school you have offer(s) for? It would help us in advising you.
