Creating this thread now for a couple of reasons:

Just going to get in here before this inevitably becomes inundated with hundreds of posts once the thread opens!

We usually miss the odd post when results are released because we get so overwhelmed with posts all coming in at the same time.... so if you notice we have responded to quite a number of posts after yours and it's been a day or so with no answer, please quote your post and give us a prompt and we will answer it.

And some useful threads for those who want to know where to start for interview preparation:
MSO Interview Portal!

Best of luck everyone!

For dent:
UQ - You would need to get a 99 atar or get some bonus points to bump up your atar to 99, but your UCAT is basically a shoe in
CSU - Interview Yes
UADEL - Interview Yes
Latrobe - No, you would need a 99+ atar for that
UWA - Interview if you can get a 99 for pre entry
Griffith - no, need a 99.8
USYD - No need a 99.5 for an interview for pre-entry
Unimelb - No needs a 99.85 for pre-entry
JCU - unsure, written component and rurality contribute a large portion but atar is high enough for sure, just need good written

Good Luck!
