    Good luck with the interview. Just walk in as yourself, smile and think of this as an opportunity for the panel to get to know you better, regardless of how intimidating or scary they may seem. Mock interviews and preparation days will be completely different to how you may come across on the day - in fact, I'd place a lot of it on how you're feeling on the day really.

    I know it's still to early to be worrying about everything but I'm getting more anxious each and every day that goes by when I don't hear a thing. I think I'd feel a lot better if I had a date or something confirmed to work and look forward to. I'm becoming increasing lethargic and it's not doing me any good. At this rate, I'll probably be hearing from UCL first with some news depending if the BMAT really was the disaster I felt it was. Oh well, only time will tell I guess.

    I feel much the same.
    I'd just like to hear something. Anything to know that my application is a serious contender. Before I applied I felt sure that it was, but now my lack of work experience and quite frankly awful performance in the BMAT has enlightened me to the very real possibility of 4 rejections. Although the BMAT only counts towards the decision for one of my choices, it really shook me.
    I know I'm getting more and more paranoid everyday and people keep telling me I've got things all out of proportion but it is very hard when other people are hearing things and you're not.
    Hang on in there :console:

    Were not alone, the sheer majority of us are in the exact same position.

    We just need to try and forget about Medicine and concentrate on getting the Grades, because without those were Nothing.

    I keep trying to throw myself into my college work. Until we hear anything there isn't much else we can do other than keep up to date with medical news and so on.

    Agreed, tis what I did last year when I had no offers :p: To be fair there wasn´t much else to do.. Well expect feel sorry for myself which wouldn´t have achieved anything!

    Besides if you get the grades you could also take a gap year and apply again like me :p:
