    :hugs: Sorry to hear about BSMS, but you seem to have the right attitude about it anyway ;yes;

    I think the policy for reapplying varies with each uni and quite a few will say they don't reconsider applicants who were rejected after interview.

    I have an interview at Nottingham this Wed; slightly scared because my other 2 didn't go amazingly, and this is possibly my last chance. Hmm I think I'll just see how it goes though and hope for the best!
    Aw thanks
    Why you think they went badly? I bet they will be the ones that end up the best

    Arpeggio, I really wanted to ask how your sheffield one went, but I don't want to seem like I'm trying to find out what questions they ask! Was it a fairly standard interview?

    Does anyone else think that incessantly reading about everyone's interviews and rejections is unhealthy? And has anyone noticed how, despite the number of rejections mentioned, no one seems to have an offer yet?!

    A few people have offers from Birmingham in the Offers Thread.
    I agree though, it is unhealthy, it causes so many people to panic! And it fills up the forum so much!
    oh well, what can you do :rolleyes:

    It probably wouldn't help much if I told you anyway, because it was very PS based and most of the questions led on from my previous answers (I think because of this it felt a lot more natural than my SGUL interview - actually like a chat rather than an interrogation session :p:) There were 3 people on the panel (I had a GP, a junior doc and a med student) and it should last 20 minutes. The further away you live the earlier your interview time will be, and although they say they go on till 5:00 I think the latest in our group was around 3:40! They're really nice though and try to put you at ease Good luck - when's your interview?

    My interviews next Thursday - and I only live an hour away, so I guess I'll be towards the end! I'm really not looking forward to it purely because it is PS based, and I cringe every time I read the absolute crap I came out with. It's my only interview so far so I'd really like it to go well I'm quite jealous of you with your three interviews!!

    I know what you mean - at one point in my interview they actually stopped asking questions and starting chuckling over the first line of my PS :p:

    Never would have thought I'd get 3 interviews at all, let alone before Christmas; I put it down to a heavy dose of good luck! You'll be fine at Sheffield though, just try and enjoy it (as strange as that sounds :p:)

    OK 3rd word: ingrowing

    And I'm saying no more. This could turn into a burnt pyjama incident (not that I'm claiming mine's anywhere near as good as that one, but still )

    Lemme just crack that dusty word document open....

    "I have a passion for learning, a thirst for knowledge and an overwhelming desire to help and care for others."

    OH GOD what was I thinking! Here is me wondering why I have no interviews...I think I just found out why lol

    Aw I like that actually. Slightly cringeworthy, but then absolutely everyone's is and you'd probably look really lame and unenthusiastic if you didn't have your fair share of "fascination"/"passion"/"desire"-type words. I reckon it sums up the "Why Med" question in one nice little sentence...
