Medical students at universities with a strong divide: Oxford, Cambridge, St Andrews, I've heard the London ones are reasonable divided too, and any others I'm missing. Does it bother you?

I don't really know wether it's something that's important to me or not. What do you think, pros and cons of it? Was it a deciding factor in where you applied?

Thanks

St Andrews is no longer as "traditional" as they were in the past. Their website states that they are an integrated med school:

They also state that Clinical teaching is integrated with basic science learning throughout the course, teaching you to apply medical sciences to clinical problems.

Not for me, but my advice to you is: apply strategically. However if your stats are perfect, then by all means think about that.

Have a chat with previous Oxbridge students, but I would assume most of them have had no problems with this.
