    Hi guys and girls,

    I thought I would start off this thread re: entry to 4yr course at Liverpool 2012. If anyone hears anything, post on here!

    I sent my application off last week as I'm currently busy doing a MSc at Institute of Psychiatry. Now it's just a waiting game!

    Goodluck everyone

    Hi Psycho....!

    I'm applying to Liv grad-entry 2012 too...what makes you want to apply there? I haven't sent my application yet because I'm waiting for one of my referees to get back to me - although they said they would today so hopefully I can get it sent this week....best of luck!

    Hey rennstimpy,
    I've heard Liverpool is a great medical school and my friends who have studied there have had a really good time. I also didnt score too highly on the UKCAT so at least it doesnt put any emphasis on that! Why are you considering it?

    Hey - I think it has a good reputation and amongst some of my doctor friends it seems to rank fairly highly - or certainly not be associated with any negative connotations.... also a big factor for me is the UKCAT (I did well fine and I am applying to others for which it is required, but is nice to apply to somewhere that doesnt use it to give me a fairer chance - and also I live in the area, so from a friends/family point of view it is probably ideal....where else you applying?

    I need 3 referees for Oxford - one of them (last one to get it back to me) is also my UCAS reference - so cant send either until they finish it! I understand it's almost done now though - but I'm just getting a little twitchy! I studied Veterinary Medicine at uni (round 1!) btw - what about you?

    yeh, best of luck to you too. My degree was at Cambridge. Ah, the question I'm sure I'll get asked so many times in the future! Lots of reasons, mainly thought of treating people more fulfilling/?worthwhile, greater degree of specialisation, academic interest, think will enjoy studying again, more treatment options, more evidence for available treatments, money slightly less of an issue in terms of treatments - to name but a few...what about you? whats your story!

    I got an email from Liverpool on Friday 30th asking for my academic transcript and degree certificate. Did anyone else receive an email?

    Sh*t - now I feel really behind that my application hasn't even gone in yet! Do you have to send original copies - in the post?

    Yeh, I hate you a little bit Psych :)
    I know - my blood referee has this morning given me my Oxford reference but still not even started my UCAS one! I know they'll do it in time, and that it will be great - but I like everything to be done 2 days before! Getting twitchy....

    My degree is a Bachelor of Science one, and they accept Biological, Biomedical, or Health science degrees. University College London offers a good Psychology degree, so I'm hoping! I did look on forums in previous years and there are many graduates with a Psychology degree. I have done alevel chemistry and biology however.

    Fingers crossed for everyone!
