    Hi,

    What does it mean if I have applied to those places and haven't heard anything from them.

    I know that I am not the top applicant, but I am hoping for a least one interview!! I applied all over the place!

    Thanks and Good Luck

    Melb - I also am getting a little squeamish. I've gotten interviews, just not at the places I wanted, and a lot of them aren't that competitive.

    I'm starting to wonder what the interview cutoffs are at some of these places.

    Melb, what were you numbers (step 1 and clinical grades)? I think it just means that you got the first pass, meaning when more applicants decline the interview during the first pass, you might get an interview off the waitlist. It's probably too early to really panic. There are still several programs (a little less than 1/2 it looks like) that haven't given out interviews yet.

    I'm waiting basically to hear from Palmetto Richland (South Carolina) and the North Carolina programs (Carolinas, which I know IS competitive, as well as UNC, Wake Forest, and Duke).

    I've got a 242/249 on my Steps, and rank in the top quarter of my class (with all A's in the third year). I'd like to meet the people who are getting the first pass interviews ahead of me and shake their hands.

    I don't think Palmetto-Richland or Carolinas has invited anyone to interview yet. Has anyone else heard anything? How about UNC? I know Duke has extended interviews (though not first hand). I have invites from 7-8 programs and am still waiting on the ones in North and South Carolina. I guess we just move a little slower down south.
    I heard from Medical College of Virginia and Johns Hopkins today.

    I haven't heard from Palmetto, Carolinas, Wake, or UNC. I have a fairly good app with 249/248 boards and good letters, but my app wasn't complete until towards the end of October. It's good to hear that I'm not the only one still waiting though.

    Interviews:
    Hennepin
    Mayo
    UMKC
    Arizona
    UConn
    Christiana
    Christ Advocate (I'm not sure that one was mentioned above)

    My application also wasn't complete until October 24th, so I'm hoping that factored into it. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who's a little anxious. I do have offers from a couple of the places I wanted to hear from, but I was under the impression the floodgates of offers would open from everywhere on November 1 when Dean's Letters went public, and I guess it's taking some of these places a while to sort through all their applications. At least, I hope that's the story. Have people gotten offers from Florida-Jacksonville yet? That's another one I want to hear from.

    Here's the list of invites I've gotten personally so far - it sounds a lot like the same list you guys have:
    Wright State
    Missouri-KC
    Hennepin
    LSU-Baton Rouge
    Vanderbilt
    Kentucky
    Maryland
    Orlando
    Eastern Virginia
    Arkansas
    UT-Southwestern
    Mayo
    Texas A & M/Scott And White
    Michigan St.-Kalamazoo
    York (PA)

    I feel your pain Melb. I have one solitary interview and one rejection so far. My (e)mailbox would have virtual spiderwebs in it if it weren't for all the debt consolidation and porn spam.:mad:

    Can I ask when you got your Vandy offer? That's one that I (and my wife!) have been eagerly awaiting. I waited until Oct 31 to send my third LOR (I was waiting for a second EM letter that I still haven't gotten!), so I'm hoping that they just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    October 30 is when Vandy said hello to me.

    So is hasn't been all that long. I had four letters listed, and it took while to get that fourth one to come in. (Of course, it was one of my EM letters.)

    I hope you hear from them. Sounds like you have good numbers, at least as good as mine, so you should stand a great chance, I'd say. I hope we all hear from where we want to hear from, in fact. Good luck to everyone!

    P.S. I did hear from Jacksonville today, as well as West Virginia.

    haha we all seem to have gotten interviews at Case Western. We all probably got the same email this morning. Funny how in the email i can see all the other applicants email addresses! Now I can prank email everyone and clog their email addresses with so much spam you will NEVER be able to filter through to the real interviews. That's one way to get rid of the competition. Hahhaha now all i need next is to boil your bunny and serve it for dinner.

    Just kidding. But I do think it was weird that it wasnt' a BCC in the email.

    Quin... is it high on your list? I know pretty much nothing about this program. Trying to decide if I should make the trek out there or not. (As you can see.. i have no life, other than checking this stupid board).

    Hey bud. Pretty much everything is high on my list. I have only interviewed at one place (St. Vincent's), rotated through two EM residencies, so I am definately keeping everything as objective as I can. I really don't have anything to tie me down to any geographical area... so I really have very few rate limiting steps when it comes to where I like. So what I will base my ROL on is my initial feel of the place and if I believe I will be uber-confident when I finish the residency.

    Of course, I ask around all the residents I work with their opinions on the different residencies. And this information is not objective. But it is nice to get the scoop on places before you go...

So in my view, everything is ranked #1... it is any negatives that I perceive that will drop them down. Kind of like in high school where your teacher said everyone starts with 100%.

    CWRU is a really good program... you are making a mistake if you just brush it off and don't go.

    Made some phone calls today:

    Carolinas--it will be the end of the month or beginning of December before offers come out

    South Carolina--started sending them out today

    Vandy--still sending them (I actually made my interview date while I was on the phone...that's awesome!)

    U of Chicago--still sending out invites

    U of Virginia--due to personal matters, the coordinator has been gone, but she is back and there are offers waiting to be sent out

    Indiana--still sending out offers

    Virginia Commonwealth--they've sent out most of their offers already (not sure about this one)

    Baystate--still sending offers out

    Received invites at Cincy and Case Western. Cincy is the one that's thought of one of the top 5 programs, right? What makes it such a great program (other than being the oldest)? My scores and grades weren't that great, not sure how I got these interviews.

    It's hard to say since the programs aren't officially ranked, but Cinci is viewed as a prestigious program. I had a good board score and decent, but not perfect grades and a few publications, one in EM.

    I heard that they are big on research and a guy I talked to quoted the PD as saying they specifically look for people going into academics (so no talk of working in the sticks in your interview). I didn't mention research in my personal statement. Also, with the whole LOR balance thing, I went with people who knew me really well over "status"... I didn't kiss ass to any famous people which is prob. a big negative for my application. Oh well.

    It would be useful if someone is keeping a list of interviews if they could keep the dates people are going, too. It would be interesting to meet the people behind the login names.

    For me: Metro/Nov 12, Wright St/Nov 20, Vandy/Nov 22, Maryland/Dec 10, U of Mich/Dec 14, St. Vincent's/Dec 17, W. Va/Dec 19, SUMA-Akron/Jan 14, Orlando/Jan 16, Jacksonville/Jan 17, Baton Rouge/Jan 23, New Orleans/Jan 24

    Anyone have matching dates?

    I know that Indy has been giving out interviews, but is there anyone else still waiting for them? I have all the interviews i wanted except there.

    I looked at the SAEM site and it says under the interviews section that they invite via phone call. Is that correct? Anyone been invited there and they did so by calling you??

    Here is the quick link to look for yourself.

    I applied to Indy but haven't heard anything back yet. Odd thing is I havent' heard from ANY Chicago programs or Indy. I have all the interviews I want really, except those out there. I'm sure most will be given out this upcoming week. Weird-o.

    My own personal travel schedule (subject to change) looks like this, for those who want to meet this man of mystery:

    West Virginia 11/21
    Eastern Virginia 12/02
    Jacksonville 12/05
    Maryland 12/10
    Michigan State-Kalamazoo 12/16
    Vanderbilt 12/20
    Mayo 1/03
    Orlando 1/07
    Kentucky 1/10
    Scott And White 1/15
    Baton Rouge 1/16

    There are several of these I'd like to drop if better offers arrive. Anyone who's going to be any of those places, though, feel free to say hello.

    I also heard from Pittsburgh today. I'm worried - any program where people at work on a SATURDAY sending out e-mail is sending me the wrong kind of message. :p

    I am still waiting for Indiana. Have almost all of my interviews also, except there. Ohiodiva heard in early Oct via email--I thought they sent out emails stating they were waiting for Dean's Letters? Anyone else heard from Indiana??

    Yeah spud, i received that email too (i'm sure we all did) that said they wont offer any interviews until Deans letters come out. Oh well, I guess a little more waiting can't hurt that much.

    You know- I just heard from U. of Chicago by phone- I am out of town & haven't thought about phone invites- I am excited about U of C!

    Sad.. I was really hoping for programs in Chicago, did any of the other programs give out invites? Northwestern, UIC? I know Christ, Resurection, Cook (and of course, U of C). It's so weird.. you got the U of C, but didn't get Cincy. I got Cincy, but didn't get U of C!

    BTW, what are the dates being offered by U of C?

    About Indy,

    Heard from a classmate that they only have one interview date left as of today (Jan 25). He was going to be out of town and was looking for someone that would switch with him (Indy apparently ok'd it).

    Anyway, for all of you (and myself) hoping for Indy interviews, that does not sound promising.

    They said that they are interviewing on Tue & Wen Nov-Jan...Since it was a call, not email- I don't have the available dates. I have a friend that got a Northwestern interview a week or so ago, but not me- ww
