    Sure, why not! If you start one now, I'll get in on it pretty quickly, lol.

    I know for Orientation Week, they're planning to have lots of "Hi, my name is..." sessions to get us to know all 89 of our classmates, but this way we can get a head start.

    I wrote paragraphs. I don't think point form works very well with the format of the supplemental..

    Can anybody tell me what kinds of questions they asked in the interviews? Did you end up getting the books that you all needed from the UBC bookstore?

    At the interview, you sign a confidentiality form stating that you will not divulge the interview questions to other candidates (thus ensuring fairness), so I can't tell you what they ask. I can tell you that the questions are scenario questions, and the interviewers are judging your clinical aptitude.

    As for books, yes they're all at the bookstore.

    Hi aintreallynotreally,

    just curious, have you applied to UBC already? I am waiting to see if I get called for an interview.

    by the way Tranquility, thanks for all the advise you have posted. I do not know anyone else applying to UBC this year and I found your previous posts so helpful.

    Thanks for the response Tranquility! Sorry, I didn't know that you had to sign a form lol. By the way, how did you find first year? What's the set up like? are all 90 of you in the same lecture hall and all in the same classes?

    Hi 39bcgirl, yeah I did apply for the 2010 intake! I'm also waiting for a response haha although I bet we won't be notified for a good month and a half since it's only february. I've been checking my email a lot and ssc. is that how were being notified for the interview?

    One other thing, I don't know if you can answer this or not Tranquility but are the questions common knowledge clinical things because I personally don't know much about it or are they more like ethical questions?
