1) At the doctor's clinic they didn't let me get checked up because they thought that I was a walk-in. But I had an appointment.

2) That company doesn't conduct walk-in interviews. You went there as a walk-in so that is why they didn't let you have the interview.

3) That refrigerator was very big. It was a walk-in refrigerator.

Please check my sentences.

Ted, a cold room/walk-in refrigerator is not a freezer.

Can we say "A lot of walk-in applicants are coming to have an interview because it is a walk-in interview session"?

Can we say "It was a walk-in MRI center where you didn't need any appointment. You could go there as a walk-in patient"?

You can if you want to drive your listener/reader crazy with the multiple repetitions of "walk-in".

No I don't want to do that but I would like to know whether I have used walk-in correctly here? Are my sentences grammatical?

It was a walk-in MRI center.

It was an MRI center where you didn't need an appointment.


Your sentences were grammatical but far too wordy. All you need is contained in my sentences.

We can use the terms "Walk-in applicants" or "Walk-in patient". Am I correct? Can we say "He is just a walk-in (Patient or applicant)?
