to get back to the thread topic...
psych really is a buyers market. i have a decent application and got 12 out of 12 interviews from places all over the country with very different teaching goals. i am very glad i took so many interviews so i could contrast them and see what programs i really like. a few points to think about...
1. location- not only where you want to live, but also, what are the patients like? the demographics in houston are very different from boston.
2. research money- i am not into research but interviewed at some heavy-hitter programs. none of the places i looked force research on their residents but the funding speaks to the reputation and contribution of the faculty
3. resident vibes- at the dinner its pretty easy to see where you'll fit in
4. pharm vs. therapy- some places have a focus on one or the other while most are based in GME guidelines. good to know this going in.
