    Well my interview kinda ended on the note of:

    So your a geek but likes to bake banana and honey muffins

    I also wrote on my PS that I'd read some 85 page report....one of my interviewers just HAPPENED to be the co-writer....LOL! He was pretty impressed when I was actually able to talk about it.

    My two interviews kept saying they were trying to catch me out but couldn't, they even started asking me maths questions :p:

    I tripped up on how to administer Kennel Cough though....apparently it's up the nose....since when....I must have been blind!

    How did you end up talking about that?!

    And if the rest of your interview went well they probably don't care jade, don't worry about it!

    sounds like your interviews all went well
    As for talking about cake in interviews in my Nottingham one we were very close to the end - to wrapp up my interviewer asked me :
    "so FAGV, what do you think you could bring to the course?"

    so I thought for a while and really couldn't think of anything valid or intelligent to say, however I had already worked out my interviwer had a good sense of humour
    so I replied
    "I make a darn good chcolate cake "
    one year and one month on I'm sat in my room at Nottingham vet school revising Cardioresp for a formative exam....
    t'is all good :p: ...

    haha basically Mr Bob...yes he was called Bob said "so do you make anything" I said "yer I build alot of computers for people and I'm kinda into that uncool stuff" - "so your a geek then?" - "hmm yer I guess you could say that" - "so what else do you make that's non technical?" - "errrm I baked some mean banana and honey muffins"

    He loved it :p:

    I mentioned in my PS that I'd read some 85 page report titled "unlocking potential" ok this guy happened to CO-WRITE the report....wtf :rolleyes: so yer he was happy that somebody had actually read it haha

    Ugh I hate the 'trying to trip you up/catch you out' thing. I know that is half the point but I fall into every trap or I just run out of things to say. Ah well, this time next week it will be over!

    Edit: Ah I see about the muffins thing. I have to say though, apple and raisin are much nicer, especially when I make them :p:

    Yerr the man said "I've been trying to catch you out but so far failed so I'll give you a maths question" :confused:

    I have a 25 kg dog and it needs 4mg per kg per day I have 25mg tablets. How many tablets do I need for a 5 day treatment?

    I got it right....poor interviewer :rolleyes: so that's when I think he gave up and broke out the "so have you made anything" :p:

    Really enjoyed today...even though now I've been up for errrm 16 hours :o:
