    Hey people

    So I'm going to UCL on the 25th of November to attend my interview. Would you guys have any advice of how to prepare, what to wear and what to expect. Btw for current students, do you have any idea who will interview me, is there any info on the site or should i just ring them up?

    thx!

    Don't worry. It means you're in and they've already worked out an offer (at least that's what they said when i had my interview last year) if you've been invited for a physics interview. Just enjoy the day and enjoy meeting the ledgend that is Stan Zochowski

    If you've been offered an interview , essentially, you have the place. The only reason the interview is there is for you to see the place properly (and hence help you make the decision). After all, it's in everyone's best interests that you like the place. Without an interview you may come to UCL and be like "Actually, I don't like it here...". By inviting you for a tour and talks with 2nd/3/4 years (really useful) it gives you a chance to see if UCL is for you.

    What to wear? Wear what you feel comfortable in. I came in casual trainers, jeans and a fleece jacket. As long as its not crazy you'll be fine.

    What to expect? Be okay with your calculus and be okay with anything *you* mentioned on your personal statement. They will only throw at you what you give them.

    Stan-the-man doesn't do admissions anymore . Stan was awesome last year - before your interview you'd do physics experiments - so much FUN! (playing around with liquid nitrogen...amazing!)

    Oh that's rubbish, who does admissions now? and why is our mechanics homework so hard?

    *Apparently* because Fisher isn't the one writing them. I think I overheard someone say that the professor who used to do it before wrote all these problem sheets (and he's retiring this year). Perhaps if that old guy taught us we'd have more of a clue.

    The maths problem sheets are pretty easy, its just mechanics.
