    Haha! Because they don't decide until EVERYONE has been interviewed. Last year I got that before the interview, as I was sitting outside the room. Fooled me into thinking I had a chance, too.

    Hey listen, there's nothing at ALL you can do now - you can't change your exam marks nor your interview marks - all you can do is wait. So, relax! Do other stuff!

    (I on the other hand have exams until the 30th, and the interview on the 8th )

    you got a package? I thought they gave those forms to everyone on the day of their interview. The forms which you sign and return once you're in. Maybe their photocopiers/printers died on the day.
    Anyway, yeah, they give everyone those forms (usually on the day they turn up to their interview, something to fiddle around with before the interview :-\)
    Other unis send those forms through express mail after the person has gotten the offer (grad med)

    Theres a lot of other selection criteria you need to fulfil, despite a relatively low UAI cutoff, it is still damn difficult to get in.

    92 uai is a guesstimation by someone previously

    it's 93.8

    and what jess said. (ie. umat/uai/interview)

    Apparently one of the things they do is put music on and ask you to dance to it while they all sit there and watch..

    90.8 UAI cut-off for "rurals" (or "bumpkins" as we are constantly referred to as...)

    Anyone do Med/Arts in Newcastle? Seems like the program is really integrated and there's no mention of combining degrees on the website...

    just wondering if any 1 in the coffs harbour area is doing UMAT and any umat courses. Me and a friend need 1 more person to do a course so we can all get a $200 discount. the course is in Brisbane

    last year i would have said yes, but one prep course and sitting of umat was more than enough for me! but it worked and i'm headed for UNCLE next year. also, don't be discouraged and feel like you won't get in because you're from a country area, because the requirements are much lower. i come from woolgoolga (you probably know where that is) and i got into UNSW and UNCLE, so it can be done! the main problem i found was the time taken up with travelling to all the different things you have to do.

    Thanks for the incouragement. I think the hardest thing is going to be the UMAT for me. did you have to write those essays on work experience and community involvement for your UNSW application. I dont know what to write.
