    I thought that it was about time to pen this seeing as the 8 week anniversary of my son’s interview at Imperial has just passed with not a word.

    As an ex-IC person myself (as is my wife) I would like to express my dismay/disgust/disappointment in the way that the interview procedure has gone for us as a family.

    My son was invited for an interview on the first day that the interviews were handed out. His BMAT was good but nothing special, though his PS in terms of experience in the NHS was exceptional (as stated by a 5th year and 2 1st year IC medics, the GP neighbour and interview panel people at Kings and UCL).

    A date was set for 13th January. On the last day of term (18th Dec), however, he received a “decline” through UCAS. This has happened to at least 2 people on this thread, but he must have been one of the first. The admissions people didn’t know what was happening but, to give them their due, he was contacted by 4pm to tell him to ignore it so that he would not be on tenterhooks over Christmas. The UCAS, however, has stayed at “declined” since.

    Anyway, the interview came and things seem to go pretty well, though the “ethics” question was about how he would reform the NHS (only three points needed!); a pity as he is very good at the ethics issues (we had lots of practices..). He was told that he would be informed the first week of February of the result which would be almost 4 weeks (he confirmed with the person after him that they, too, were given this date).

    Due to people from that day getting offers/rejections and because of the UCAS situation, he contacted the admissions after 3 weeks and there was no feedback from his panel. The first week of February went and so he contacted them at the end of the following week (half term) and managed to get in contact with someone who was quite helpful. The message at that stage was 1) they still had not even gone through all of the applications and were still giving out interviews 2) they hadn’t had feedback for the vast majority of people and that those hearing after a week or two were the exception and not the rule and, in contrast to some of the mis-information here, 3) you CAN reapply even if you are rejected at interview.

    He is in contact with someone who interviewed on the same day and is in the same position. Having called Imperial today he was told that it is not normal, but not unusual- no more info!. We just can’t understand how they can keep people hanging on for so long when I see a batch of people today who have acceptances when they interviewed only recently.

    To have waited this long with a potential rejection at the end will be a kick in the teeth. I certainly had expected much better from a “world class” university.

    My rant is now over. Good luck to you all.
    Unfortunate but that's how it goes
    Maybe he didn't impress as much as he thought he had or came across as arrogant

    Had the last interview of the day on the 3rd March, got my rejection after seven days... Found that some of the interviewers were more interested in packing up and going home than listening to what I had to say. One spent the entire thing looking everywhere but me and slumpted in his chair except the few minutes when he asked a question and after which he slumped down again. Don't think it was a very good attitude for someone interviewing for one of the best medical schools, even if they had been interviewing for 3 hours. Also felt the 'ethics' question wasn't very ethical either... Wonder if it would have been any different if it had been at a different time

    I'm afraid that arrogance is certainly not and never will be his strong point! Compared to how many people on here say their interview went I don't believe he could have done so badly (especially with the practices with the IC people and UCL person).

    Neither is "that how is goes"; for a professional organisation you do things professionally. You either give dates and stick to them or you don't give any. You don't organise interviews and then send out rejections. Imperial's method of acceptance/rejection seems totally ad-hoc in the extreme. At least others eg, Kings/Newcastle-Durham say that everyone will be informed at the end of March.


    Well, having had my rant, Imperial has just got back to him and made him an offer BUT FOR 2016- I assume that they think that he is a bit young as he will only just be 18 when the course starts. Surely, they could have got back sooner rather than having to hang on for 2 months.
    They have said there is a hold list for some cases
    Maybe he was borderline and they didn't want to reject him outright so waited, to then decide that a deferred offer would be better

    Thats a distraction technique for interviews
    Cambridge do it all the time
    Tests that you can remain focussed under pressure

    Hey I have my interview coming up on Wednesday and I am fretting over all these offers handed out, I am worried that the interviewers won't take me seriously as they will have handed out their offers. Is this true or am I just worrying too much?
