Received 3 other offers for Medicine

Decisions about the application

for the name and the location

dunno really- oxford seemed more of a city than cambridge.

erm, had to choose one. knew someone there, rich college



but it was utterly useless

be confident, know ur personal statement inside out,





didnt prepare- u cant really
v long, lots of q’s not enough time to do them in
everyone found it hard

2 interviews. 2 men at each. one was scientific, and the other moral/ethical ans supposedly non academic

science q’s- having to apply knowledge what would u do if u were a doctor and… (ethical) asked about personal statement

trouser suite- dont like skirts


very nice, green and old

big rooms

Edible but not great

but i was told that the food is usually much better

variable- some were friendly and smiley, otheres seemed as if they were wasting their time with u and couldnt wait to get out the interview

pretty down to earth and friendly

Final stage

i knew that i wouldnt get in because i crapped up my interview.

Looking back

perhaps, but id apply to a college where the ratio of applicants to places was lower

go for it, if u get in great, if u dont no big loss. u get a few days off school and i really did enjoy the experience ( except for the interview bit that is)
