    Hi all

    Was wondering how many people are applying to this program this year. If anyone has already gotten in I was also wondering if volunteer hours helped a lot or not. I have paramedic back ground and military but have been earning my undergrad for the past 4 years so haven't really done any health care volunteering as I am also an older student . Was also wondering about the mini exams especially the arithmetic one for the interview. Any info would be appreciated. thanks!

    Yeah I submitted mine this past week. When did you get an acknowledgement of them receiving it as I haven't yet. I'm post grad what about you? Oh wow thought they would just have one big interview day or week event such as the 5 days in May.

    I am an undergrad in my final year. I got a email informing me they will contact me soon but that was last week thursday. Thus i don't believe i have been acknowledged yet. Do you have any information about interview style for this programme?

    Same here they must be going over all the packets and stuff. I had my referees send in their stuff as well and the uni has not told me if they received it yet. So must take a little while. Might be worth calling them to confirm they have everything. No I have no idea on the interview style I'm sure they will give us an idea about it once we reach that point.
