    I think number crunching, while fun at times, achieves very little.

    There were figures, somewhere, once. I'm sure you'll find them if you look hard enough.
    Certainly I knew how many interviews were given out the year I applied. But I can't remember now. Sorry!

    27% get an interview. 1/3 interviewed get in making it roughly 1/6 over all!
    Anyways... I LOVE KINGS!

    I got a conditional (last year) without interview. Wouldn't it depend on the subject really?

    Thats right. For medicine all those who are given offers are interviewed.

    Applied to Kings and a few others. Haven't got a single interview yet. On the bright side, that gives me more time to prep. for my interview(s), but I am really worried that they just won't come. I have heard some one has already been interviewed. When are the latest interviews that they give out?

    It says about 28% of interviewees are given an offer! 3500 applicants, 1100 Interviews, 650-700 Offers. I dont think these are that crazy, most medical unis are the same! Lpool, Leeds & more..

    Just because you've done your homework doesn't necessarily mean that you are able to communicate your answers effectively, etc.
