Hi everyone,

I hope you had a fantastic year and now enjoying the well-earned break. This thread is created for the purpose of collecting data. In the past, we were able to make very good estimations and predictions using data collected from MSO members. Thanks to those contributors, we were able provide sound advice for future applicants with a high degree of confidence.

Your contribution to the thread will be appreciated. Please share the information which you are comfortable sharing with the public. You do not have to share all of the information requested, if wished. You can send us (rustyedges or Stuart) a private message and we can post your data anonymously, if wished. The more data we have the better we are informed.

Finally, this is not a chat thread. Please limit posting unnecessarily. Any discussions can be held in Otago - Graduate Entry 2018/2019 Chat/Enquiry.

Thank you and good luck.

If you wish to contribute, please use the format illustrated below.
