My palms are sweaty Knees weak, arms are heavy Eating carbs to get ready, Mom’s spaghetti I’m nervous, but on the surface I’ll be calm and steady But inside, I keep thinking I’m forgetting all I prepped, Doing Right couldn’t save me now I’ll open my mouth, nonsense will tumble out I’m hoping now, the prompts won’t psych me out My time’s run out, I gotta stand out somehow Snap back to reality Stop with that self-pity Don your best outfit and Show them your empathy No, you won’t choke, just speak slowly with brevity Own the moment and be stoked that you aced it You know your CanMEDS like a pro and now it’s time to show UBC that you’ve grown and you made it here Rad personality, that’s what they’re gonna see Better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass you You better be yourself in the moment and ace it, just pace it You better never let it go Just take your best shot, do not miss your chance to show MMI interview you’ve prepped for a lifetime Go get it Prepping for my MMI, making myself crazy Out of my mind, interview time Wrote it down and read it out, hope Doing Right will save me Too many times, I’m out of time My nerves, they make me feel like somebody else and everybody else seems so accomplished But we all got an interview so I tell myself I tell myself One, please read the cue Unless you want to ramble ’til your face turns blue Two, take your rest break And don’t forget your firm handshake Three, another door This hallway seems so endless, I can’t take any more I’ll try to smile through my MMI interview I got new rules I count ’em I’ve got new rules I count ’em I gotta tell them to myself I’ve got new rules I count ’em I gotta tell them to myself Interview is over but I want to know the answer You’ll have to wait (No way!)

Admissions don’t mess around but they chose me so and this I know for sure But I can’t wait til August I can’t wait to see new friends walk through the door Don’t try to fight the feeling Join the celebration, it’s your moment now Go on and thank your parents and your friends for caring, you’re in med school now!
