    I met some nice Germans...

    The indigenous population is a bit strange though. They do however make an awesome curry.

    My experience of Birmingham is that to spend six years there would be a fate worse than a fate worse than death.

    Before dark its quite nice though.
    I have spent five years there, and happy it was too. Certain areas are hellholes though.
    Its quite nice where I live

    I'm not really sure mate, I think he thinks it's a bit of a ****-hole :p: I'm guessing you're from there?

    EDIT: possibly because it's full of brummies? :dontknow:

    7 isn't bad, it's like 6 but with a gap year. Considering when people grow older and reflect back on their life, they seem to think that uni was the best part, it's an added benefit. Some people even opt to do an MB PhD which is 8 years :p: (or more if you're not very productive doing research).
    It's 8 then! :getmecoat: :p: If I intercalate plus my gap year it's 8 years although then I'd be BM, BMedSci, MSci! Although I'd better not get too far ahead of myself (some fresher enthusiasm right there ), after a couple of years, I may just want to get through and say '**** the masters' :p:

    70-80 of my year group intercalated. Thats a huge amount of people so after third the it all changes anyway. And because of placements people tend to be all over the place.

    And in my experience you don't want to be stuck in the teaching hospitals when there are nice friendly DGH's you can go to
    Oh I see. I didn't know that and the prospect of having to make loads of new friends in a year of people who'd already formed friendship groups just seemed quite daunting.

    You see, I should have spoken to people like you before deciding, but I spoke to some teachers at school instead who gave me the impression that large teaching hospitals would mean better clinical experience as you get to see more, do more and learn more. But yea, after reading some comments, I guess it's probably true that the doctors will be far too busy in such a hectic hospital and smaller hospitals would probably give you more "contact time".

    Oh well, I've made my decision anyway and it's a good thing there wasn't really a wrong decision to make :p: I'll never know what I missed anyway With what you mentioned in mind, it'll just be weighing up the benefit of the extra options for intercalation against Southampton generally.

    Rumours were that this year they reverted to only interviewing 8A*s and above in the second half of the interview cycle
