    Well groomed, does not necessarily mean clean shaved and shorter hair.
    Many an old-school consultant would beg to differ

    In Elliot's interview for Harvard she had a nose bleed and then sneezed on the admissions tutors, so it was kinda relevant.

    I'm not saying I'm not weird though.

    Well basically I'm overweight, and I have an interview of medicine at kings and I feel for lack of a better word guilty that I have applied for a course that means i have dedicated my life to making people healthy but how can i do that when i cant even keep my own body in tact?

    And I'm convinced this is what my interviewers are going to think the minute they see me.

    I'm not asking for comfort, Im asking for straight up facts on whether my physical (not clothes and that because I will be smartly dressed for the interview) appearance make a difference on whether i get in or not.

    Thanks
    James
    I'm sure there are plenty of overweight doctors out there. Not to mention it is something so trivial I doubt they really give two *****.

    Black is the most slimming colour there is.

    OP, it doesn't matter.

    When you're fat, it's not really the shoulders which should concern you, rather it's that ever-expanding waistline, and there, black does the best job.

    As much as I may joke about it, I do love Gizmo's input to things on here. I just have a strange image of some cross between oliver and a welsh mining village when I read them.

    I think we all found it difficult waiting for responses (except gizmo, he was too busy looking for his next meal)

    I think it is different for women and men. While no man would care if he gained some chest deph and width, he would care if he got a gut, whereas no woman would want to walk around with massively broad and fat shoulders.

    you need to find out what your uni wants from you. if they want science splurge and you pretending to know the latest medical developments then wear the appropriate slick suit. if by getting your interview, the school lets you know your good enough to get in and they are now looking for personality types, then let them know it and wear appropriate clothes. thats what i did (although i was extremelly sure that the university was very interested in wanting to get to know the applicants personality) - i went in black jeans and a blue jumper. the interviewers loved me

    BUT, all my medic friends cant believe i did that..soo..you might wanna re-think lol

    A paradox is a set of statements leading to a direct contradiction. Considering firstly that he only put that he tends to skip your posts, and secondly that he was referring to your general style as opposed to any specific content, I fail to see how that can possibly be described as a paradox.
