@Dalhousie AAMSHow many of the Med1's thought their interviews went poorly but still got in?

It's completely normal to feel like you could have done better, said things more clearly, or brought up an additional point. Its way easier to think about the negatives and forget the positives! Like @hartk48 said, many people in our class felt unsatisfied about their performance, and then theres people who felt like they aced it. At the end of the day, you honestly never know (which kind of adds to the excitement of this whole journey). 

I would say don't worry too much about it,  all of your work is done!

I'm not sure if anyone knows/can give me an answer to this but, for a few of my stations, the interviewers asked me a follow-up question when there was less than 30 sec left. I didn't have the chance to answer the question, would I be penalized for that? :/

Followups are to probe you further but you are not advantaged/disadvantaged for answering/not answering them. You're judged on what you said during the entirety of the station so don't worry about it

Follow up questions definitely play a role, I wouldn't discount them. In your situation, the interviewers were aware that you had 30 seconds to answer, so they wouldn't hold it against you if you didn't have time to answer... that would be unfair.
