Hey Lisa, i'm in OHT as well, just wondering what GPA/rank you think we'll need to get in?nah i don't think we compete against each other, i think it's an even playing field unlike places like uwa.
anyone here have their int at griffith on monday at 3.15? if you did then i was in your group the head of the dental school interviewed me so that was just slightly intimidating lol! good luck to everyone!
Controversial? That's being very kind.Ya Veon probably, though some of his views are controversial.
Yeah, I did get a few offers around Melbourne but none of them are directly dentistry offers so this is clearly the best one course wise.Hey, we have alot of Melbourne people up hear that are doing dentistry. I'm not one of them though.
I've been to all 3 major uni's in Brisbane/Gold Coast, I can't tell you about the chemistry or intro biology subjects, as I took credit. But if you want to do one of the best anatomy courses (1016Msc AND 1017msc) then griffith has it. We don't really touch too much on dental stuff in the first year with only one dental subject which I didn't think was particularly taxing.
Considering its a fairly small campus it's alright everyones a pretty happy bunch of people. But if your not really a sun person, and don't feel that you want to be so far away from home, consider you closer offers first. However you many be surprised how many melbourne people are here.
Did you get any offers from the uni's down there?
I'm not a sun person.
This may strike you as odd considering I study on the gold coast. Though it's part of the reason I took the offer. Change of environment and whatnot, for better or worse.
I never did think i'd ever say I miss the Melbourne weather, but what do you know, I make a point of complaining about the coast-weather at least twice a day.
Bigheadache, the only thing we really disagree on is my decision to take the Griffith offer over La Trobe, for reasons that are my own. Yeah, I know it's (too) expensive, yeah, I know i'm quite poor, and so it was probably a rather silly financial decision. But i'm sure you know that's not the only reason people pick one place over another. And yeah, I don't like the sun too much, yeah, i'm not a go-to-the-beac-every-day kind of person, and yeah, I don't like the fact that there is little else to do at night other than going to Surfer's for the clubbing, which i detest. Oh, and the fact that everything closes at 5.30pm bothers me quite a bit. It's rather expensive to live on the coast, also.
And no bloody parks to go for a walk in? Bleh.
Good decision, bad decision, it's the one I made and you're free to point out which of two you feel mine was, and I might even agree with you there, but it's my lot to bear, and at this point in time, i remain quite happy, all things considered, with the way I went.
The reason i'm happy now- it could be argued, may have been found elsewhere. It may been a lot better at La Trobe. Then again, it could've been a lot worse.[/offtopic]
Oh, and hey Kate, it's Andrew.
hmm, what sort of enviromental factors are you asking about? I can tell you what I find different about Griffith from the other uni's. Smokers, I find there seems to be more. I don't like smoking, and think it's rather ironic that on the mainly health profession focused campus there are so many smokers. There are fewer grassy areas. Parking, definatly better. There are heaps of coffee places. Majority of the facilities are new. The campus isn't massive so that you'll get lost. There is one major library not 5. There are a bunch of social events on each year.What's the actual Uni like, outside of the actual lessons and in terms of environment coz being a Melbourne city kid the Uni's I compare with are Monash and Melbourne Uni which are ofcorse very prestigious and all so I am afraid of Uni's which I havent heard much about such as Grifiths
hey Ashlea, when u say that the parking is definitely better,Parking, definatly better.
Hey,hey Ashlea, when u say that the parking is definitely better,
in wat context do yo umean by that, as in theres always going to be spots lying around?
cos im interested in purchasing that semester parking pass thing
and how much is that going for? (if u happen to know?)
yes you only enrol for first semester subjects only.Ok, I m starting to figure it all out slowly lol
We only enrol for the first semester subjects yea?
Still a bit overwhelming all the different subjects and times and days :huh:
