    Just thought I would start this to see what everyone else is experiencing. Heard back from maybe 12 programs with three interviews. Applied to 30+

    Congrats on so many interviews! I heard there are two waves of offers? How many interviews have you been advised to go on?

    I applied to 20 and have heard back from 12. 8 interviews so far. Things seem to have slowed way down these past 2 weeks.

    I'm applying to MFM this cycle. A few questions:

    1) How many interviews did you go on?

    2) Some of the MFM programs on ERAS had more than one "Fellowship Program" option to apply to, but sometimes they were both labeled the same vague "MFM Fellowship program" (so I clicked on both)... does anyone know what it means? Or are these typos?

    Also, some programs have multiple different "fellowships," but there is no mention of this on the program website. Are these different tracks?

    Thanks!

    I'm applying this year too - I just picked the more specific "MFM Fellowship Program" for the programs that had 2 options - I'm hoping that's right!

    I would also love to hear from anyone who applied in the past about how many interviews you went to and how soon you heard from programs after applying! I just submitted my application this weekend and am now just anxiously waiting.

    Good luck to you! :)

    I submitted my app in March. I’ve gotten a few interviews so far. However it seems like most programs don’t start sending out invites until May/June. Then from the look of this thread, they can be sent out as late as August??

    Applying this cycle as well. I have scheduled 6 interviews so far. I would love to hear from someone who applied in the last few years and what their interviews were like, any unexpected questions etc? Good luck to all!

    Applications closing today, hopefully that means the bulk of the invites will be out in the next couple weeks.

    Applied to 25ish programs, 6 interviews thus far...

    Added three more last week so looks that it wasn't necessarily the onslaught I anticipated after applications closed.

    2 more this week...

    No outright denial emails though, so keeping the hope alive on a couple places.

    What places have you had your interviews at so far? Thoughts/impressions?

    I had my interview at Johns Hopkins. Staff and fellows were great and great research opportunities. I am on my way to Ohio State now.
