    Just started it so it's currently a little boring, will hopefully get better as the year goes on (provided I post regularly!)

    Hmm.. If you were going to start a wiki, any suggestions on the layout?

    I was thinking of something similar to the stalking thread, without the quicklinks.

    Table headers will be: Username | Blog URL + Blog name | Founded | Status

    Username - Self explanatory, but perhaps the link of the user's profile can be added too
    Blog URL + Blog name - Again self explanatory.
    Founded - When the blog was started
    Status - Highschool / Applying to University / At University / Graduate

    Yeah I think that is perfect, and exactly how I imagined it. Simple and easy for people to quickly go through.

    Hi

    Here's a helpful blog which if you look at the top there are some tabs which give some good advice to potential applicants. Well worth a read.

    http://medic-student.blogspot.com/

    Could you add this blog too?

    Wish you all good luck!

    If you do need any help from someone who's been successful btw please don't hesitate to ask questions on the blog or suggest post titles you would really like to hear about.

    Also here's my best mate's blog

    http://urban-meerkat.blogspot.com/

    This covers issues that would be good to know about to prep up for an interview
