    Question

    I live in Melbourne and think of applying for the University of Melbourne and Monash Univeristy but I also have my eye out for UTAS, UWA, UNSW, University of Newcastle and University of Adelaide.

    I've browsed all of their sites for the last few hours but I was wondering, if you are offered an interview in another state, do you need to travel there? If you do, do you need to pay the expense yourself? They don't seem to explain the procedure in detail... :|
    The Suicide Seven:
    1. IB Chemistry (HL)
    2. IB Physics (HL)
    3. IB Psychology (HL)
    4. IB English A1 (SL)
    5. IB Mathematical Methods (SL)
    6. IB Indonesian (ab initio)
    7. The Extended Essay (in Physics) and the ToK Essay (Topic 2)

    You can help me if you're an IB tutor in Melbourne. PM or email me ASAP and save the life of an innocent person today. =D

    Haha yeah us three all came from Sydney (STILL DO) and spent several thousand between us going to interviews. It's not a cheap venture, and it's even more bitter if you don't get a place, but nobody says it isn't worth the prize.

    damn fuel levy! Recently I got a red-spot special fare- return flight from Melbourne to Sydney. Cost me $150!

    Put that in your list of 'cons' kiddies- living away from home is likely to incur you massive travel costs- even more so for Lexicographer (Perth) and Pointdexter (Adelaide).

    F--k yeah, I spend around $200 on every flight. I should join the frequent flyer club, I'd get at least two free trips in my course.

    Still, it's cheaper than what I'd spend on cityrail...I think.

    *thread revival*

    inasero, pointdexter, lexi, keen... where do you guys live? In colleges or other accomodation? Which are the best colleges in your respective universities? I just checked out all the respective sites and they all look alright - an inside view???

    thanks!

    for the n-millionth time- i live in shared accomodation outside the uni
    lexi lives in a residential college on campus
    pointdexter lives in a share house outside of adelaide

    in monash...all of the colleges suck- the food, the accomodation, the price. But if you have cash to burn and you like drunken shenanigans then college is for you. In Monash, the majority of medical students staying on campus stay at Mannix College...it's closer to the medical faculty and is catered...although it is expensive at 250+ a week.

    Ive expressed my opinions on where's the best place to live...so have a search around on the forum and you will certainly be enlightened on this matter.

    I'll answer your new question.

    As far as I can tell, UWA doesn't have a "best college", but more a "best college for you". Even then, you might just not be the type for college. Mine is known mostly as the most alcoholic college, which at first glance is a stark contrast to my personality. But I'm more or less able the less desirable antics of the people around me, and they're all straight arrows so we get on ok. I know a number of people who weren't as easy-going as I am, and decided to leave.

    that's what I'm doing in Sale (SE Gippsland region) for two weeks...the doctors here don't have many students dithering around in the hospital so they are more than happy for students to rock up to Surgery, ED, etc etc so long as we don't all rush the place at the same time. The operating surgeon even let one of the clinical students suture the remnants of the foreskin on the base of the penis! You certainly wouldn't have that experience in an urban clinical school.

    general medicine and general surgery rounds don't start until clinical years (i.e. next semester for me)

    Question Re: Interstate and International Admissions - updated

    Hi, i'm going monash uni for 06 med, and i'm gonna be living in melbourne by myself (it feels so daunting), so i wanted to ask u about living in melb

    i was wondering weither it's better to live on shared accom near the campus, or living in the city( cost would be higher in city right?)

    i mean clayton looked like a hole the day i went to enrole, is there even any shopping centre's around that place , but it seems like the only place i can say at for a newbie moving into melb

    so based on ur experience is first year really really really hard, cause i've heard from all these ppl about high flunk out rates at med first year
