    Out of curiousity have any of you guys ever been dissatisfied by your experiences as a patient and what did it make you think ? E.g. I better go study right now so I don't end up being incompetent/a GP lol
    Yes, but it wasn't an academic/scientific/whatever the correct word here is disappointment. More in the department of communication. So it didn't make me want to study, it just made me consider how I'd do things differently.

    TSR is full of the med school geeks!
    All year I see complaints of procrastination/drinking/scraping through, then come results time the pages are filled with top percentile scores/distinctions/merits!

    :p:
    It is fear that makes us work.

    In other news playing badminton against a county while hung over is embarrassing. Fun though.

    Did you miss me? :p: Back from Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt very brown - and after some nice diving

    I'm sad it's so cold here

    Anyone else going away

    My holiday is probably going to be sailing and blissful gardening. Yes I am a little bit sad.

    The sailing or the gardening?

    Your sailing sounds more fun than mine, I am getting my day skipper qualification. Then I can charter yachts

    Officially a year 2 med student Passed and progressed. Let the loon grinning commence
    Well done!! I've passed and progressed too, aaahh we both have ISCEs this year!

    Just watched the advert for the Apprentice final, so ridiculously excited! I should really get a life. I had thought they weren't doing interviews this year, so now I've seen that they are AND that Margaret is back for them, everything is good!

    Well done!! Where are you based for this year? I'm not terribley nervous about ISCE's atm - lots of my interviews for med school were multi mini interviews and I really enjoyed the ISCE style of them. That said, I'm sure the fear shall come when I'm closer to it and I look into it a little more.

    Who are you two rooting for to win then?

    I suspect it'll probably be Helen since she's been favourite for like ever, but I honestly wouldn't mind Tom winning either - he's probably my favourite of the lot. Susan went to the same school as one of my friends here and she's pretty good too considering how young she is and what she's done with herself so far.

    Right, so what we have established here is that anybody but Jim should win this to keep me happy. Can't stand that dude! He should have left ages ago!

    Jim went to the same school as me (quite a few years before though ) I think he is the perfect example of local people talking out of their arse and it somehow working on people. I think he deserves credit for managing to stay in for so long :laugh:

    Really want Tom to win. Don't like Helen - she's a bit too perfect. The thing I don't like this year is that the final is the interview so we can literally just guess from now who Sir Alan likes as there's no real winner in the task. So basically Jim is out of the question, especially since he will interview horribly, being all defensive etc.. I guess it's still open between the other 3 but I reckon the interviewers will give Tom a hard time But Sir Alan likes him soo.. I want Tom to win but I think Suzie will win because of her story and Helens crazy wholesale tactics which meant she is lacking business acumen.

    I liked the funny quote from Jim in the next episode with interviews:
    "Well that was a walk in the park! With them shooting at you as you go through" :p:

    Yeah, convincing a PM not to bring him back to the board room (that was quite legendary), blaming others in the board room (which tbh isn't specific to only him) and not getting fired on Wed night despite being a bit crap that week, yeah fair play, I suppose he has played the game very well which has obviously been great for our viewing experience. That said, I still don't think he should win. It just wouldn't be fair on the others IMO.

    Yeah I agree, Helen is way to perfect! But everyone I ask wants her to win.

    Jedi Jim to win! That guy could talk his way in or out of any situation, and has been very entertaining. Whether he actually deserves to win or not is another matter entirely Would also like to see Tom win.

    Just got back from work, four days after I left. 14 and a half hour shifts at the Telegraph's literary festival is a lot of effort for a summer job but I had a brilliant time.


    I got to meet Howard Marks :awesome:, then I liberated his wine after he was done getting high in our tent. :ahee:

    I know! He was really nice as well, only problem was that all the people hanging around with him wouldn't leave. I don't think they twigged that it was half 11 and we couldn't finish work until they left.
