    This year i'm applying to a much more competitive course than last year...last year i applied for Biology, and got 5 offers.

    However im worried as nursing is so competitive and ive seen the best candidates not get in...is anyone else scared to check track sometimes, or open an envelope from a university..thing is i want this so much more than last year, and i don't want to end up in clearing in a not very good uni, doing the course...


    I'm in the same place :p: I know exactly how you feel! Last year I got 4/4 rejections :o:
    Just keep going and see what happens Not much more you can do! Make sure you prepare for interivews well etc etc!

    Good Luck! Hope it works out for you

    Edit....and that was my 1000th post! :p:
