extraordinary breastfeeding or the godfather II?
man oh man.
I said something along these lines in response to a question:
"... dr have a lot of responsibilities, more so than in most other proffessions"
and she said (rather cockily I might add) "but so do airline pilots"
I said "yes that is true".
What was she getting at? I dont know, I just sat there after saying that, I dont know what else they expected me to say. I didnt say that it carries more responsibility than all proffessions, and im not aobut to launch an argument into which is the most responsible postiinio. So i said that a dr eps a surgeon has a more direct responsibility to peoples lives. And she just said "so a pilot doesn if he crashes the plane"
good point Ant but still unfair.
FiL - medicine interviews are meant to be hard and challenging - they'll often ask you questions beyond your scope to try to stretch you - they don't expect you to have the correct answer - they just want to see your thought patterns and look for potential.
Furthermore - UCL often do an Oxbridge style interview i.e. mean, nasty and confidence-destroying where you come out feeling like rubbish and thinking that the whole process was a waste and you screwed up. Well - that's actually a good sign, if you have an easy interview it means they don't think you have what they want and thus they generally signify a rejection - the crappiest interviews mean that they're stretching you and ironically, is good.
ooo im getting ever so close to the MAGICAL 1000 !
