    Please switch spots!!!

    Though the above comment sums it up well, I still want to mention something. If Queen's is known for their strict interview scheduling and they make a special case for you, then that's reverse-discrimination to everyone outside your religion. Religious discrimination is only if your specific religion is discriminated against, that is clearly not the case if everyone is suffering the same treatment. Just let this thread die there's literally nothing that can be done for anyone here, doesn't matter what factors are involved, Queens has made this abundantly clear.

    "Tell me about yourself"

    Seems to be the general consensus, even for regular job interviews, to provide a story about yourself and mention what factors brought you here (the interview).

    Not even surprised, I guess they can't really add you to another session. That's just how it goes with group interviews, adding one more person would probably destabilize the way its set up. Really sucks if you can't make it. Good luck on your other interviews though!

    20 extra days of practice, last year they gave out some information AFTER the first interview weekend (though it was something vague about timing and stations that we were given in the interview invite email anyways, but shows that those later dates might have an advantage), mental sanity, and the odd case is schedule constraints based on other interviews/things. Now I'm curious, why did you want the first weekend?

    I don't mean to hijack your spot but just wanted to say same. If there happens to be two people with similar motives we both get blessed. Honestly just happy to be interviewing either way.

    I guess send them an email explaining your situation if you haven't already. I don't think anyone will be giving up their precious 2nd weekend date unless someone's really altruistic. Somehow I don't think that'll be the case.

    Thinking of getting highlights in my hair...

    Why would you open yourself up to a bias like that? You may think it is just a fashion choice but people will make their own inferences, maybe to you even making unwise/rash choices in the future. Yes, for girls it isn't as bad, but as a guy it's much more likely to raise some eyebrows. With appearance, you want to look professional and how interviewers want the school to be represented by its students. Who knows, your interviewers might even think that future patients will not have confidence in you from the start. No can say whether it may or may not have any effect, but there would be more potential negatives than positives with it. Just hold off on it and do it once you're in.
