    asif007So, you pay a ridiculous amount of money to go on an interview prep course that dosn't do interviews?? And then you have to do more work? You couldn't make this up, could you?

    I might go and start up one of these companies...

    See post above - Shall we start up a company, rent a seminar room and talk about how to do interviews? £100/20people = profit. Who's with me?
    I sold my soul and did this for the interview season just gone/ going. Such good money! Also, some of the answers you get are hilarious.

    I'm in guys. I'm guessing between us we have probably had interviews at nearly every UK med school?

    I reckon it would actually be do-able.

    Build a cheap website, rent a space in London, £100 a pop. All commute down, stay in a hotel, give a few talks, blow all the profit on blow and hookers.

    We probably have enough londoners to save on the hotel.
    More blow and hookers :yep:

    asif007 I attended an Ace Medicine interview preparation course back in November 2010 and found it immensely useful. They give you a booklet full of information and tips, which I found very helpful in the run-up to my interview. A plus point is that they also collect questions specific to medical schools (although they haven't included all schools), so depending on which university you've applied to, it should be really useful.

    They only thing they don't focus on so much is one-to-one interview practice, so I would suggest you do a lot more preparation in addition to attending the course. They have a good range of lecturers from some of the top medical schools (eg. UCL and Imperial) so there is a lot of information to take home, but it's not exhaustive.

    Also, I would recommend you to go with at least 2 other friends applying for Medicine - if you book in a group of 3 or more, you pay £100 each for the 2-day course instead of £130. I'll admit it's not the best price, but definitely worth the money.

    Hope that helps.

    If this interview prep kicks off I'd be down. I was contemplating doing it for BL/going back to give a talk on how to write personal statements at my comprehensive school.

    No! Cold hard facts (levels of evidence based statements) & scientific shreading.

    You've a way to go yet before you hit that stage. I don't think my account saw the black for the whole of clinical school. Got perilously close to the OD limit too. But after one or two paycheques you'll be fine.
