I'm starting 1st year under grad midwifery at Vic Uni in Feb. I got an early round offer on Friday as well. I had a chat to the staff and Vic uni and they were really helpful so I put it as my first preference, so happy I got in! Plus it's on my side of the city so a bit easier to get to for me.
Does anyone else have young kids? I'm using a nanny until we get a place in child care, but don't know if I should request full time child care or not! I'm a bit worried about contact hours because I haven't been able to find any solid answers! There's an enrolment session in the beginning of December so I guess I'll have more of an idea then!!

It's really hard to work out the contact hours etc. I just want to know! But I think it'd change every year and you'd have to wait to sort out your timetable.
I have a 20 month old son.. And have just found out I'm also pregnant!! I am not sure what I will do, but I don't want to defer. My friend is at ACU and says they can help & be accommodating, but I have a feeling she will tell me to defer, which I REAlLY dont want to do, rather take on 1 or 2 units (I think 2 is the minimum though) ill have to call the course coordinator for help

I had interviews in Mel but had already left for my paid pos in Qld. I am so glad I had the hindsight to apply to VTAC!
I work in aged care, doing nights. I only do .5 but being nights- it is good money! I get the Grade 5 rate.
We can live off that and hubbys income. I do a fair bit of acute too. I'll cut down after uni starts.
I am glad I will know someone!

Acu grad mid
Same here, night shift. Grade 5, I live east of Melbourne about 2 hours, so I have been working out best way to get to the uni? I am too old to contemplate the what ifs anymore and just plunge into it. Did you want to make a FB page so that all starting there next year can chat!

Hi mama surfs,
congratulations on your offer, you must be so excited. Do you mind me asking what your STAT score was? I also sat it and for various reasons I stuffed it up. I did really well on the practice tests and then ran out of time on the real test. Then I just panicked! I got 70th percentile. I would be so grateful if you could tell me what score you got in to ACU on? This is where I have applied and am desperately trying to work out my options going forward as I know my score is not good enough. Once again, congrats and good luck. Thanks.

hi everyone, I am trying to make a group, but it's telling me to "add friends"
but of course I don't know any of you!
Should I do a page?

I thought i'd stuffed up horribly too. I was convinced I'd done really bad, but apparently I didn't (or everyone else did worse than I!) I got 160 or 76.5%. Roughly around that, i cant remember exactly and cant be bothered going into my vtac account. However, I also finished high school in 2008 and had an enter of 86.3 so that might have helped too.
Don't get down just yet, maybe you did much better than you thought! Good luck!!

Sorry, just saw you got 70th percentile, that's great!!! That's not doing terribly at all!! think of it this way, you did better than 30 or so % of people there, that's pretty good!!
