    I swear some places interview for pharmacy :confused:

    I reckon they should start recording interviews and putting them on YouTube or something. It'd make for some pretty LOL moments - the things some people say ...
    Yeah..I went to 2 interviews..but they were no where near as funny

    I agree!

    Untrue. I know plenty of people (including medics) who do not have 'dark humour'. And I most definitely do not intend on getting one if I do get a place. Just because you've got that dark sense of humour, it does not mean I will develop one too.
    Woody makes me LMAO.

    There was that one consultant who was a right ******. That said, the rest were pretty nice.
    IMO, none of them were as arrogant or ****headed as Gerry Robinson himself. I really disliked the way he went about that programme.

    My St Georges interview was filmed last year, I bet there are some cringeworthy things on that - unfortunately I seem to have blocked most of the interview out of my mind so I can't remember if I said/did anything funny!

    It would have been so much more funny if it had been done by Alan Sugar. :teeth: "What do you mean you've forgotten who I am? I'm bloody Alan Sugar, I'm a national treasure! You're fired."

    Looking at an oxygen dissociation curve and talking about gas exchange, I decided to say, "Carbon dioxide isn't really that relevant in gas exchange." Riight.

    Something similar happened to a friend at Trinity this year. When he phoned up to enquire about why his offer is A*A*A*, they simply told him it's because he literally asked for that offer in the interview, they would've given him an A*AA offer had he not said anything. Not that that's going to make you feel any better.
