    Hi, I've got an interview at Keble for law, and although I'm feeling quite confident with the law based questions, I'm actually struggling the most with the 'why law', 'why Oxford' etc questions, so if you could possibly help me with those that would be great. I think that it sounds like you're doing everything you need to, perhaps if you've read any law books make sure that you've got a few key points from them that you can remember and use in your interview, but think that's it
    Well for me personally I really want to study law to then go on and use that as a tool to help people in the future , but it's totally your own decision what the response to that question will be and it's really personal, I'm sure you can dig deep and find the reason In terms of why Oxford I'll probably just say something like it's worldwide achievements idk... To be honest with you , they don't reallyyyy care about the responses to those questions I don't think x

    Okay thanks, I just asked cause I had a mock interview today and they were the questions that I felt the least confident with. How are you feeling about the interviews, are yours next week? x

    CJaneH Thank you very much, fella Have a nice day

    The Spartan I think I did ok, apart from the 2nd question, so I reckon I got around 60 as well .. So I just found out from CJaneH that they will give their replies to international applicants tomorrow or on Thursday.. Are you from the UK or outside the UK?

    Congratulations, I've got one too for St Hugh's and LMH
    I don't think they particularly care whether or not you have a nose stud, 99% certain they care more about your ability as a doctor/academic than your decision to pierce your nose

    Congrats!!! I got one at St Hugh's too, which day are you going?

    Also, does anyone know why I got an interview at two different colleges on the same day? Does it bear any significance to how strong they think my application is? My first choice college was Univ where I got an interview, but I also have one at Balliol later that day, instead of two at Univ. Is it because Univ is unsure if they'd really want me?
    How did u find out what colleges offer you interview?

    Of course it's not bad, if you've got an interview then you're just as good as all the other interviewees, regardless of what books you have or haven't read. If you're really really nervous I'd recommend taking some tablets or using a spray like rescue remedy just to calm yourself down on the day. I haven't had a mock interview yet, (I've got one on Tuesday) but I'm just trying to make sure that whilst my answers are relevant to Oxford and the Jurisprudence course, that they don't sound overdone or fake. Everyone wants to go to Oxford at least partly because of its reputation but you need to have a more personal answer. Btw, which college is interviewing you?
    Thanks for the advice - i feel realllly underprepared. My interview is for Oriel. What about you?

    You should have applied to Imperial. Your stats are too good for just Warwick or Bham
