    Was that at New College?? I had an interview there too! Although fortunately they kept the bones in a bag until half way through the interview.. :p:
    Haha no it was at Wadham. I guess the oxford colleges like to use human bones to differentiate between the morons like me who somehow manage to slip through the initial admissions net and those who actually stand a chance of getting a place. At least I made the decision easy for them

    They're pretty big on bones at other colleges as well. I actually got a skull as well.

    Well this is for a dentistry interview. But still funny as hell.

    Interviewer: Why Dentistry?

    Guy: Id rather look in people mouths, than up their arse's

    Interviewer: Get Out
    That's a bit harsh, couldn't (s)he take a joke?

    Just reading something in one of the applicants threads inspired me to start this thread. So, what are the funniest mistakes you've made (or heard of that others have made) during a medicine interview?
    When it was time to leave, I walked straight into the closet instead of out the door:facepalm: ..I could've cried with embarrassment..

    Edit: Just realised that that wasn't something that actually happened in the interview, but right afterwards.

    Someone I know went to his cambridge interview and was greeted by an old woman who gave him a diagram of a cell and simply gestured for him to speak without saying anything else. He had no idea what he had to do so in his mind he just thought 'how the **** am i meant to reply to that?!'

    I've made a ton of ridiculous mistakes at interviews..
    *Went into a lengthy debate about euthanasia and if as a doctor I'd allow it to happen.. ten minutes later.. oh yeah, its illegal anyway, so I won't do it
    *Why should they choose me? I'm hard working.. (completely lost my trail of thought..) And oh.. I'm creative and into video editing.. wth?!! (Was ill during this interview in my defence)
    *So have you been on an open day here? Yeah, I went to the pharmacy one..
    *Do you know anyone studying medicine or at this university? No, all my cousins weren't smart enough to get into uni.
    *Have you studied respiration at A level? No. We did photosynthesis though, so I imagine its the same thing.. Oh wait, we don't have chloroplasts...
    *What is an advantage of studying here as opposed to oxbridge (this was at barts)? Well.. More diseases here?

    Chances are I'll add more when I remember.. I love this thread

    "So, I think you would've expected this already.. Why would you like to study medicine at (University)?"

    "Well.. it's a highly-respected university, and I know the quality of teaching is excellent.."

    "But what about the course do you like?"

    "Um.. well I like how patient contact is introduced early.."

    "What content of the course appeals to you???"

    "You guys use those student response gadgets in lectures, don't you?"


    Oh dear.. :facepalm:

    The problem with humour and medicine, is that while it is a useful tool, the humour has to be the most banal and uninteresting, but impossible to be offended by humour. That kind of behaviour would be wholly innapropriate with patients and with staff you did not know well.
