The further away from my UBC interview I get, the poorer I think it went. I just don't think any of my genuine personality came across and I think I had a bit of verbal diarrhea. I wasn't really very well prepared for the questions they asked. I thought I was prepared for the types of questions, but when I got in there I couldn't make the stories I had prepared to use fit into the specific questions they asked, and when I tried they just sounded vague and unengaging. Everyone's gotta have a first interview though and I can only hope things get better from there. This weekend I have my U of T and McMaster interviews and then next week Ottawa. I'm only interviewing at 4 schools but for 7 different programs. I'm not sure how my combined U of T urban/Barrie-Newmarket interview is going to play out because the programs are so different but we'll see how it goes. I'm curious to talk to residents from the Ottawa programs because they all seem to be in pretty big hospitals (with the exception of the rural stream and the 2-resident pembroke program) and I wonder how the residents feel they fare with specialty residents around. That is why I'm going to their social night - to try and get the inside info.
