    At sheffield,
    There was a plate of cookies in front of me and they offered me to take one. So, I got up, picked up the plate and a cookie and sat down, tried putting the plate back to the table, somehow didn't judge where the table was, the plate with the cookies ended up on the floor and when i got up at the end to shake hands, I stepped on the cookies, cookie crumbs everywhere. So stupid. :s

    Aw, thank you. Its the thought that counts.
    What is worse is Sheffield makes their decisions really quickly so I should know about the outcome soon soon.

    Nah it's cool, I couldn't get a graph of just the shape and it does say penetration on it.:p:
    A bit late, and it's not medicine related but you can get jobs in penetration testing...

    I know this is ancient, but are you sure they weren't asking you about Koch?!

    Reminds me of a time I thought my (very old and gentlemanly) tutor in my first degree kept calling Daniel Deronda a "prick"... until someone pointed out that he was probably saying "prig".

    Favourite ever embarrassing interview story was one someone posted on the Oxford forum ages ago. The guy in question saw the interviewer put his hand out, and went to shake it, only realising too late that the interviewer was actually pointing at a coat-peg for him to hang his coat on. Unsure whether to stop mid-gesture or not, the poor guy decided it was best to carry on, and ended up shaking the interviewer's pointing finger. :lol:

    I think we've established that the interviewer was asking about Robert Koch, not ****.

    I accidentally insinuated that one of my interviewers was gay. :facepalm:

    He had made up a scenario where I was the doctor and he was the relative of a patient. He asked me to explain what had happened to his relative so I said: "I'm sorry but your... uh... husband--" He then bluntly interrupted with "Relative."

    I cringe whenever I think about it. :facepalm:
