    Was just wondering, seeing as all our applications are away anyway, it would be good to know wat people have done that they think will give them an edge over others in our quest for places?

    Honestly, I've no idea! I just do what I do and let the rest take care of itself.

    I'll tell you if and when I get any feedback :p:

    Spaces are of the utmost importance in a PS

    On a more serious note - my experiences living in Singapore, travelling to Ladakh, Cambodia etc. doing charity work and seeing the poverty and how remote these places are as they are things few people back in the UK get to do.

    I think the most interesting thing I've done was writing a short case study on my uncle who has early onset Parkinson's.

    Brilliant. If you actually did write something so witty (I'm sure you did), did it ever get asked about at interview?

    I didn't put the case study in the PS, heh.

    I just commented that I'd written one and talked about the emotional impact it had had on me mainly, and how I'd been shocked at how his condition had deteriorated.
