Hello all,

Keen to share UQ interview experiences...

Without giving too much away for those still to sit, my experiences were alarmingly identical to those of 'Bec' in 2006 as described on the 'kesmarek' site (not allowed to post the URL as a new member - google it).

Only wish I'd seen that site two days BEFORE my interview, not two days AFTER!!!

The interviewees were very friendly and professional.

Seemed to talk about every topic under the sun EXCEPT being a doctor, which made me wonder if I was in the right room, but I'm sure they must have been using secret interviewer powers to build all manner of psychological profiles of me (?).

Only downside (I hope) was the final Q - they asked me to talk about why whaling should be legalised. So, I launched into a great speil etc. Wasn't until after the interview I got to thinking - Did they want me to mount an argument FOR whaling, or did they want me to pick one side or the other?? Eeek! Now they think I'm a baby whale butcherer!!

UQ interviewers, if you're reading this - I'm not a baby whale butcherer! I think they're majestic animals who should be protected! I was just making an argument I thought you asked me to make! aargh!

ohwell....will just have to wait til November/December I guess.

How were other people's UQ interview experiences?

rgds,
Happy

Hi!
my interview went alright..
I researched what the most common questions were in med interviews so I got nothing unexpected.
The interviewers were lovely, sat in front of the table and had some laughs with me, nothing at all like some of the 'good cop, bad cop' stories I had read!
So yes, overall a good interview! but only time will tell if it was a sucessful interview :-S
Best of luck to everyone Smile

Best luck to everyone else.
