    oooh... I'm a 3rd year medic at Notts so will be still around when you lot are here.

    I went on MedSIM a few years ago, but that was held at Sutton Bonnington rather than on the main campus.

    I went last year too - it was quite enjoyable but if you can't afford it (because it is a rip off) don't worry about it, it is by no means necessary. You get to meet loads of people which is fun and the lessons outside lectures (I think there's one called 'clinical skills' or something) are great for having a laugh. Good nightlife at Nottingham, my accomodation was fantastic (Cavendish) but the food was rank so definitely take food or resort to eating sandwiches from the union shop at meal times

    My oxbridge interview was ok, I guess it was good in the sense that you get an idea of what the layout of the interview will be and what sort of questions you'll be asked but yep it wasn't really worth the money

    I was in the red group, cavendish hall (fantastic rooms-all ensuited with nice showers! One of my friends there even got her own kitchen as well!). I came during the second set of dates (can't remember the exact dates though).

    What did you do in pathology?

    Yeah I went during the 2nd set of dates.
    I heard bout ur accomodation...it was the best.
    We got the mankiest ones...the oldest ones....one floow to share a bathroom...a shower with a mind of it's own...u name it.
    But it was the closest to the Hosp, so it was nice 2 laugh @ ppl who had to trudge from near the sports hall in the cold! =p

    Pathology was mainly lectures...but it was the way they did...they lead us thru a real case, step by step...it was on Crimewatch Uk and everything. And the pics were gory!!

    Sounds like pathology was fun! I found the pics in the orthopaedics talk the most gory - not in the sense of loads of blood but just how all the bones bent funny *shudder*.

    do u still wanna be a doc?

    yeah...the live surgery was a bit upsetting. wat i didnt understand was that there were a lot of ppl who were fainting or refused to look at the gory stuff and then they say they wanna be docs!

    Yep I've applied this year to study medicine. I'm normally pretty good with gory stuff but just all those pictures and video clips of all the broken bones in weird shapes made me cringe! I didn't have a clue what was going on in the live surgery, they spent the whole time just slicing through the tissue to get to the spine, there didn't really seem much point to it

    True, I don't think I particularly want to go into surgery but then again I don't really have the experience yet to decide what speciality I want to go into!

    So you've decided to go for dentistry? My friend also used medlink to decide that medicine was not for her - she's now going for a degree in economics instead! Where have you applied? Quite a few students in my school have applied for dentistry but none have heard back as of yet...

    yeah i decided on dentistry quite a while back but it was just to make sure really - plus there isnt any sort of Dentilink - I asked that guy...the organiser...Gary - the inspirational man at the end about it n he said he tried one a few years back but it was cancelled due to last of interest!

    Apparently (not 100% sure if this is true) Gary Craven is a bit of a fraud in that he was seen giving a similar 'inspirational' talk on a prospective law student course :confused:
