cammbridge-calary method - look it up(Original post by divinelord)
Depends on what subject you are talking about. It is second to none in many sciences and some arts and generally a very nice place to be in. Its the ethos that attracted me there.
However, there are a few where it lacks. Medicine for example where the training area is quite small (you can transfer to london after 3rd year if you want) and the GMC + many hospital administration think that Cambridge graduates are too 'sciency' and haven't necessarily developed the clinical skills required to the extent they want (my really good friends dad reporting who is in the committee and he was disappointed I applied to cambs so this isnt any post rejection rant)
Its the environment, people and ethos that I think are the best aspects of cambs.
Look people keep saying this nonsense again and again and again and again but the reality is this:
Cambridge don't have clinical exposure in the first three years - fine. Cambridge has a clinical course for three years just like ANY other clinical course in the country that is very seperate from the undergraduate course. It is GMC accredited and thus has all the things which other clinical courses have - this is the same argument that people use when they are justifying why all medical schools are "the same" or why the MTAS application should be blind...
We dont have EARLY clinical exposure, that is the only difference.
What should I do?
