I've applied but more for the sake of it as opposed to weighty expectations of being successful. Its worth a punt atleast.

No interview however after you submit your applications they then select the best applicants. From that these applicants are invited to a pre-admissions test. The top 150 (I think) are then properly on the scheme and are the guys and girls that will be heading off to the US in the summer

Is anyone else experiencing problems with logging on to the application?!! I haven't submitted it yet because I wanted to read it over, but now it says that they're experiencing extremely high demand. Ahhhh! This is stressing me out!

I managed to get it to work again at about midnight. I have submitted my application, but it's good to know that others have the extended deadline.

A strong academic record is vital but your extracurriculars need to show passion and commitment. I think I focused on two or three things I enjoy doing instead of vaguely mentioning say ten. You should try to demonstrate leadership and impact. Have you had a positive impact in your school/local community? Definitely don't make anything up but if your extracurriculars are impressive you can't afford to be modest! It sounds so cliche but be yourself because when you're passionate about something your personality will really come out. Don't worry too much about it. The fact that you're applying means you're obviously dedicated and determined to achieve
