I'm guessing a very low number of us will be going to UCD so there's march first. But RCSI will be where the most of us get acccepted I think. Unfortunately, this is in May/June =\. I just wish this semester was over so the wait would end XD

Same here. I hate how we know NOTHING about the applicant pool though. It makes the process so nerve-wracking. If we knew how many were applying or other information it'd make the whole process so much easier. The closer it gets to March the more nervous I get :(. One day I think I have no chance in hell and the next I think yeah i'll get in no worries. Ugh I hate it :(.

Well , i know that you feel that way and i am pretty sure you will get in magical trevor :luck: For me its just i am not academically strong like other people and you. I mean i have the best student attendance in my grade, i am really determined, i have over 200+ hours volunteering and i work hard. Its just i am not as smart acdemically like other people are but i dont do terrible in school I am a high 70s to low/mid 80s student.To me being a doctor is the greatest thing in the world and it means whole lot to me i will tell you i would trade absolutely anything to becoming a doctor. It means alot to me:(

Hey Canadian for life, dont worry about being "smart". I got into the 6 year program out of highschool last fall and we just finished our exams (so we are like on our second sem for foundation year). I applied with mid high 80s and a lot of my friends had really high grade 12 averages so i know how you feel and it was really intimidating at first. The key to succeding (sp?) here is to put effort and hours into studying. Intelligence is not as important so much as dedication to your studies. Intelligence wise I am no where near the bulk of the class but i managed to get second place on exams because i crammed day and night for like a month :laugh:

one thing to take note is keep up in Bio cause it tends to pile up like crazy. Other than that I wish you luck guys

:luck: :thumbup: :thumbup: :luck:

I'm from Sudbury. It's cold up here :laugh:. My back-up plan is Western science or science at Mac. I got early acceptance to Waterloo and OttawaU which were my other two choices so I'm pretty sure i'll get into Western and Mac as well. How about you? What are you back-up choices?

Has anyone heard anything from either UCD or RCSI for the six year programs? Does anyone know the timeline for these?

Now that the first interview round has passed, I am curious about which six-year applicants receive word from RCSI and when!

What's everyone's status?

I did not have an RCSI interview but have also not heard anything back. It looks like some people are beginning to get rejections...

I'm expecting a response from RCSI within 2-3 weeks so I just sit tight and wait.

Hmmm I wonder why there is the discrepancy. At any rate I'd hope to be getting a response by the end of the week.

Remember that travel time from California/Ireland may be a factor as well since the mail may take a few days to arrive.

I think we're all more than just a little on edge. One minute I htink I'm shoo-in (well no, I never think I'm a shoo-in cuz I'm pessimistic like that) abd the next I feel like I have no chance. I hate false hope.

Yeah same here. I'm just hoping for a response soon. The suspense and anxiety of waiting is horrible

Mr. McDuck

I used to feel like a shoo-in, but it's hard to feel like that with a rejection letter hanging in your room. :rolleyes: At this point, I really will be happy and disappointed either way--I just want to know for sure.
