The Waiting Game

I'm kind of sick of waiting for things after all the stuff that has happened this year. Had to wait for UMAT results, had to wait for HSC results, then had to wait for ATAR's and then finally I am now waiting for offers.

I should have my first acceptance or rejection by tomorrow afternoon... It's a bit strange to think that after waiting for a year to know if I would get into med school or not will be partially over tomorrow. The thing is that if I find out I don't get in then I still have to wait until January for offers from some other uni's.

There of course is still the possibility I won't get in anywhere, which will be frustrating and depressing as I never even thought I would get interviews, and I suppose to get this close and fail would be irritating.

But anyway hopefully tomorrow I'll get some good news, if not then there will be some more waiting to be done.

A post-interview and results post...

Hello there,

I haven't posted in quite sometime I know. I'm not even going to make the excuse that I was busy because I wasn't. Since the HSC finished I've pretty much done nothing, except work and go do these interviews, haven't even caught up with any friends and I have had a lot of stuff on my mind.

But anyway, all my interviews are now done. I think they all went somewhat ok, UNSW was good, JMP was so-so with a few hard questions and JCU was pretty good (Despite it being very very hot in Townsville). After all the traveling around the place I can well and truly say I am sick of travel, and commercial flights for the time being (And this comes from a person who loves traveling and flying...)

In addition to that, results for the HSC came out today. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about them to be honest. On the one hand I will most likely get an atar over my minimum level that I said I would be happy with. But on the other hand I won't get one above the mark which I wanted, and will probably not be enough to be extremely competitive when getting into med school (Except the places with the thresholds). I suppose I can't really complain about them, I'm just heading more towards a bonded rather than unbonded place.

That's really all I have to post at the moment, now it comes to playing the waiting game. I will find out in the days directly before or after christmas if I have a place at JCU and find out midway through next month about the others. I think I have a pretty good chance... 3 chances isn't bad, and hopefully one of those 3 will turn out good....
