I got an interview for March 4th. RCSI. I am a high school student in Toronto. woohoo.
Thank you very much and congrats again.I am a grade 12 student in Toronto. Doing IB. I guess in terms of % , my marks are about an average of 86-87%. IB score hard to say. Applied for 6 yr program. I am doing Higher level chem, bio, and english. Std level Math, spanish and geography. Some volunteering experience. Hope that helps.
Yea I know. I actually applied to 3 others but it would be nice to hear from a prestigious school especially since Alberta health has dozens of residents from rcsiklabib, RCSI is not the end of the world. I hope that you applied to other 2 universities with undergrad medical schools? They are way cheaper and have the same quality of education. Also, I'm applying to Australian Universities in their Undergrad programs. I want to keep my options open.
I'm waiting on Vancouver - still no news here. Has anybody out there heard about a Vancouver interview invite yet?
It's had interviews in Vancouver for the past 3 or 4 years. I know multiple people who went to Vancouver for the interviewshttp://www.rcsi.ie/admissions_faq
I just checked the web site for RCSI at the above link and found the following:
"3.12 Where are interviews held?
Interview locations change from year to year. As a guide however, we hold annual interviews in the US (usually New York) Canada (Toronto), Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur), Bahrain and London. Additional interviews are occasionally held in Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Trinidad and Jordan"
So no mention of Vancouver
I got my RSCI interview invite for Toronto in mid-February with a confirmation of time and place right after I called to choose a time slot. There are 3 days of interviews in TO - I'm wondering how many NA applicants they interview, if anyone knows?That I don't know. What I do know is that RCSI interview notifications will arrive imminently.
Why Ireland - emphasize why you want to come to Ireland and live there for 4-6 years. Adcoms here are looking for information that you won't feel homesick and drop out of the course. (don't mention homesickness in your answer though)Thanks alot Mike
Any clue how to handle those questions:
Why our university?
What are you going to bring to RCSI?
Did you apply to other universities in Irland??
Best of Luck.
Heya! I had my interview today. It was really relaxed, more a chat than anything. They really just want to get to know you. Most of my interview was spent talking about some of the research that I've done, and what I do for fun. I interviewed for the GEP program so I didn't experience the 5/6 year program interview, however pretty much everyone else there at the same time was coming straight out of high school and they all came out of their sessions smiling. Just relax and be yourself. Oh, and if you can keep the blood flowing to your hands that would be great because mine were ice cold by the end and I felt really bad when I went to shake their hands with an icicle! Good luck!Can anyone who survived today's interview in Toronto could let us know how was it?
