THE three extra hours Toowoomba's Maisha Rahman had to wait to find out if she'd been accepted into her dream university course were the longest three hours of her life.

The Centenary Heights State High School graduate and OP1 recipient was among hundreds of Toowoomba high school graduates who logged onto their computers yestyerday to find out if and what university courses they had been accepted into yesterday.

"I saw on Facebook some of my friends had got theirs early," she said. "But I couldn't get on until midnight."

Miss Rahman will be studying a Bachelor of Medicine at the University of Queensland in Brisbane while her friends Laura McDonnell and Marissa Andersen will be studying a Bachelor of Engineering at Griffith and a Bachelor of Psychology at the University of Southern Queensland.

The three girls said they were thrilled with their course offers.

Miss Rahman said she couldn't be happier as the course she was accepted into was her dream course.

"I want to be a doctor because I want to help people. There are a lot of diseases out there and I want to help find cures for them," she said.

Miss Rahman and the other graduates will begin university at the end of February.

Successful applicants need to respond to their offers before the January 25 due date in order to secure their place.
