    Just been invited to UNSW and Monash for interviews, for an interstate should I bother or are my chances so low?

    Imo, you should just stick to curtin cause it's 5 years, a small cohort and not in sydney / melbourne. What's not to like?

    Congrats on those invites :)
    If you’d take either offer over your existing ones then go for it
    No uni sends invites to people who have little/no chance
    (Monash’s non-Vic bias only applies to interview invites , not offers of places )
    All the best

    This I like to hear.

    Definetly go to both. There’s always a chance and since the places are reserved for interstate, your chances are decent.

    Though it’s true that places are set aside for late round offers , they aren’t “reserved for interstate”
    (If interstate applicants do worse than expected in interview and the final cutoffs are revised down, then local applicants will get the offers)

    Hi hpfanfiction. Thanks very much. I did contact USYD but I've decided that I will most likely attend Monash or UNSW and not USYD since I am not that interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree before my medicine degree.

    That’s definetly true but generally only the best of interstate get offered so all the spots available for interstate are taken by interstate . I recall 200 ish people for like 50 spots. I met many of my colleagues at the interview. MMI’s allows bonding through shared traumatic experiences!

    I don't think Monash interviewed 200ish interstate students. In my year maybe 100-120 at most and many didn't turn up, to the extent that Monash had to call up more applicants the following week to fly over urgently for a top-up round. And there were second round offers back to Vic students as well.
