How did you prepare for the interview?

"Mostly I thought about my weaknesses and strengths, and tried to create ways that I would spin them. It was a very relaxed day, so I don't think much preparation is necessary." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I was impressed with the clinical curriculum and how much the Y3 and Y4 students talked about how much they got to do during their clinicals." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The day had too much free time. I also didn't appreciate that interviews overlapped so much, so you may be waiting for almost an hour after your time slot because the person before you was taking longer. The people interviewing also often answered my questions by saying "I'm not really sure." I did not like that. I also would've liked a more structured day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
