    Mines at 4:30, yh same defo gonna try go to tour.
    Havnt started yet lol, got looong to go tbh plus i had cam interview and queen marys interview so got all my prep pretty much ready so shouldn't take too long hopefully, wbu?
    Oh we might see each other then. How many people do they interview in 1 day ?
    Ah, how did your Cambridge and Barts interview go ? Have you got any offers yet ?
    I haven't started yet due to mock exams. Probably start in the half term. Is the interview for UCL and Imperial similar since I know they both use PS. I prepared a lot for my UCL interview (back in January) so I'm hoping I could use some of that.

    Yeah I got an offer from UCL. I've heard UCL are tougher as well but I got a nice panel so I'm not sure how I'd do at Imperial if I got a mean panel.
    Are the interviews 15 minutes long like UCL ?
    (Also, congrats on your Imperial offer. Sorry it's a bit late )

    Oh wow, 40 minute interview would tire me out! Does everyone wait in the societies lounge ?
    I actually have no idea where I would go. The only thing that distinguishes where I want to go are grades (leaning towards Imperial) and social life (leaning towards UCL). I don't know what the social life at Imperial is like, apparently it's pretty good?
    Also, does Imperial do dissections or prosections ?

    Hmmm, I'm not sure how to decide in that case. Why did you pick Imperial as your first choice ? Persuade me to come to Imperial, lol :P .
    Lol, I think that's the motto of every medical student out there

    I like the idea that you get to do family and community visits to get a better understanding of long-term health. I think that's important.
    Does Imperial do vertical modules (stuff like medical ethics and law, sociology, epidemiology etc.) ?
    Also, do interviews in March tend to be more harsh than earlier interviews ?

    Yeah I've never really seen something like this in other courses. How often are the visits ?
    Do you think Imperial students tend to be more studious compared to UCL or KCL students ?
