Ahhhh right!! Thank you so much for replying to my questions 😩
Don't give up applying. You can apply again this year and the year after that (for optometry only, not medicine). I reckon this year would be your year, since I still think the grade bump that Otago and Auckland students received resulted in higher cutoffs, however, this year COVID down has settled and there won't be any sort of grade bump being implemented, so everyone GPA should be a accurate reflection; not inflated.

Congrats!
Which category did you get in from (FY/grad)?
Also before you got your offer did your application status ever change from waitlist to decline or has it always stayed as waitlisted?

I applied under the graduate category and my status stayed as waitlisted. I received a call about my offer and only when I said I intended to accept it (over the phone) my status changed and I received an acceptance email. The lady indicated that there was 'a student who couldn't make up their mind and had to be given a firm deadline'. I have no idea what that means but yes!

Thank you x, Oh and yes it was for Medicine!
