I got a conditional offer letter for MSc in International Business. Do we have some group where I can connect with others?

Hi! I'm a student in the UK and I'm looking to apply to medical schools in Ireland. I can't seem to find any info so just thought I'd ask here as it's the only thread I could find:tongue:
Does anyone know what sort of grades are required and if irish unis take predicted grades into account?

Hi, you might be able to find out more info about the CAO/application process here:
https://flipbook.proactive.ie/view/959938320/i/
or on the CAO website. Most universities/colleges should also have a whole section on A-Level applicants on their websites, this is the one for UCD:

Yeah, my friend and I have that too!! But today, he got an email and was put on a waiting list for an interview. I got nothing, though, and I am a bit worried. Did you get an email too? Wait, what course did you apply to?
yes got an email, Medicine

Oh, so did you get the same shortlist email or an interview invites email? Also, can I ask if you are an international student or not?

Same here. Anyone who applied after 9th Jan can only be put on the waitlist at best (if I remember correctly). Has anyone had an actual interview invite? Has anyone had an interview for UCD med yet? (for international med).
I applied for a foundation course and still haven't heard from there.. I only heard from DCU.. Is their process slow??

Yes, I did. I was told that since I applied after 9th Jan, at best I’d be put on waitlist. I then got that email (like some others on here) a few days ago about being put on a waitlist. Where are you applying from?
