    wow
    yea... 12 hours of flight (well 24 in total)
    just for 3 20min interviews...

    Yeah, i guess if you live so close, you have a much better chance of getting it tomorrow. That's how it works round here, anyway... but I don't have much understanding of the wonderous postal system.

    Had a slightly weird dream about letter last night... arg.

    P.S. Has anyone else applied to Pembroke Natsci Bio?

    Hey guys,

    Just a quick thought and that is, even if the letters are all posted today, it's not particularly sure they will get here tomorrow.

    I know they are being sent 1st class but unless they were sent first thing this morning they might not get here by tomorrow...

    Plus, no post on Thurs (bank holiday), so they might come tomorrow but perhaps Friday is a safer bet

    Good luck!!

    medicine is very competitive I guess you must have excellent grades
    how did your interview go?
    I didn't do spectacularly well at AS-Level, but hoping to make up for it soon Clare is one of those places that looks more at all the aspects of the applicant's application e.g. extra-curricular, work experience, etc. which I have quite a lot of.

    Interview was very tough, came out feeling I did okay. They kept pushing me.

    How was your interview?
    My interview was initially going well but then at the end the guy asked me a really simple differentiation question which I stuck and couldn't do (because my brain kept thinking they wouldn't ask me anything simple so it was in the complicated mode and ironically couldn't do something easy). Then he gave me hints and I got it

    The second interview was fine and I managed to get questions right. The last one was... I don't know how to describe that but i felt I was saying rubbish and my interviewer was kinda emotionless (ie no facial expression) but then he finally prompted me and I think I got the right answer.

    didn't wanna have so much hope though...

    hey

    I think i've "talked" to you before regarding pem, but I could be wrong 2 othergirls from my school have applied to Pem, for engineering and medicine, but I havent seen anyone apart from you on here that's applied there.

    I didn't meet any other bio natscis at interview either, but that could be because I wasn't very well and stayed away from people most of the time!

    PS. Did you see the portrait of the man with the square beard in the dining hall? it's on the wall with the entrance in it... I am intrigued by this man.

    How was your interview?
    What other colleges look at the whole picture of the applicant?
    In all my interviews they asked me about my personal interest but I wonder if they did it just for putting me at ease or those things did count.

    Everything counts at interviews Usually for international applicants they tend to ask more about personal interests.
