Yea, I’m trying to edit it now, but it doesn’t give me a BMP option at all.
I don't think you can edit that part of the application after it's been submitted. However, when I made an error last time, I was able to get it fixed by emailing them and explaining.

However I know that UWA (I use UWA as the gold standard because I want to go there :p ) has separate streams for each, and on top of that each stream has its own share of 28.5% of BMP positions. Therefore, even if your scores as a normal applicant are above the 28.5% of the offered cohort, if you are in the bottom 28.5% of the NORMAL offered cohort, you would still get a BMP.
Just on this Kezza - I don’t know what JMP does specifically but every uni does this differently. While UWA (as per TKAO) for example will allocate 28.5% of rural quota students and 28.5% of non-rural quota students a BMP, other unis apply different methods (which usually results in a greater proportion of rural applicants receiving a BMP than non-rural applicants). As an example, for graduate entry at UQ (prior to reintroduction of interviews), rural students received a 2 point bonus to their GAMSAT score and then would be grouped with the non-rural students for BMP/CSP allocations. In reality, the cutoff score for a place offer for rural students was always more than 2 points below the cutoff for non-rurals, which subsequently would’ve resulted in a greater proportion of rural students having a BMP than non-rurals. This probably has little significance but just a little info for you surrounding BMP allocation.

Is it a max quota for rural or is the minimum quota? Sorry for the silly question... I know that uni's have a rural quota to fill like 30 spots out of say 100 allocated to rural. But does that mean that for the remaining 70, it's just for non-rural? Or are these rural quotas 'at least x places' not 'maximum x places'?

Generally unis won’t exceed whatever their minimal rural quota is. The only ones I am aware of that actively do this are Wollongong and JCU.

Does anyone know what the likelihood of getting your first preference of JMP location is if you do receive an offer? Specifically, I'm preferencing UoN. Does being a part of the rural sub-quota affect this in any way, such as a higher likelihood for rural students to be offered a place at UNE?

That would depend on the preferences of the cohort that receive a place offer. I don't think being rural would help with getting your campus preference, but happy to be corrected. Hypothetically, the worst possible "chance" of you receiving UNE would happen if every single person out of the 170 offers preferenced UoN first. In this circumstance you'd need to be in the top 110 out of 170 (~top 65%) of those that received a place offer to get a spot at UoN. Of course in reality some will preference UNE first, but from what I've observed on here UoN is definitely the more popular campus.

So if UoN is over-preferenced, the available places are allocated based on interview scores and those scoring higher therefore are more likely to receive their first preference?

Yes, exactly.

Is this definitive? scored 96% this year and didn't get first preference (now at Armidale), last year i had mates much nearer the interview cutoff offered interviews at Newcastle -- is there really that much change between years?
Interview location isn't influenced by UCAT score. Campus location, however, is influenced by the ranking of each applicant. LMG was referring to place offers in her post rather than interview location.

Just out of curiosity, are you opting in or out?
I haven’t decided yet. On the invite email, applicants have until the 9th of December 2019 to decide. Applicants must email to them direct. After my exams, I’m going to read the scheme thoroughly. I’m from the country & have lived my entire life in the country so maybe it isn’t going to be an issue for me but I have yet to read the ‘fine print’.

If you are unsure just opt in for now. If when you receive a bonded offer and at that stage don't want it you can decline (and make someone really happy to inherit it).

Or you can go through with the degree then not serve the Return of service. Penalty for that is you pay back the gov subsidy for your med course. About $25k times 5 years of study = $125K, only a third compared to Bond and you will have worked a few years to save up to pay.
 
Sorry if this has been asked before but how does JMP give out its 1st and 2nd round offers? Do they split the number of places between 1st round locals and 2nd round interstates and then have the 1st and 2nd round candidates compete separately for the spots or is it something more similar to unsw where anyone in the 2nd round who has an interview score higher than the lowest 1st round interview score get a place?

I don't know for sure but likely to be the former, because unlike UNSW JMP doesn't promise that interstates will have the same place cutoff as locals. They set aside a number of spots and if that's not enough (meaning higher cutoff) for 2nd round interviewees - tough luck. But I have seen in certain years some 1st round interviewees got a 2nd round offer, which meant they set aside more than enough for interstates and the surplus went back to locals.

Hi Can someone give some advice to find accommodation for 2 nights at Armidale. Flying to Armidale by myself and I need to catch a bus to where I stay and then go to the interview next day and go to the airport next day after the interview. Prefer a place where I can access public transport and a accommodation place where I can get take away food. Not sure whether there is public transport but taxis are expensive. Do they have Uber?thanks.
