    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone knows of a rural entrant that got into Med this year with a GPA in the low 7s?? The maximum GPA I can get for Otago at the moment is between 7.4-7.5. I'm not feeling so confident about my chances right and any little encouragement out there would really help!

    Also, how many times can you apply for Otago med?

    The lowest successful waitlist GPA for rural entry was 6.06 in 2017 :)

    Anyone have an estimate of what the GPA cut-off will be this year? Hearing some people say it will go upto 8.5! That seems crazy!

    Hi,

    I think that is a hard question to answer. A lot of factors to consider and I doubt any student would have adequate data and the skills to analyse such data. Hence, I would think their predictions have no scientific basis. This is a classic rumour that goes around every single year that I have been around, regardless or which university/categories. On the other hand, 8.5? Why not? I seems entirely possible. I know this is cliché and it's easier said than done, but it's probably not much use for you to worry about.
