About half-way done with my interviews here and the question the question that keeps popping into my mind is "how important are these interviews for ranking?" At least in internal medicine, it seems like most interviews are just 1/2 hour conversations and they mostly revolve around things already present in your application. I have only gotten one tough question. After experiencing 7 of these days, I can't imagine that the interview can serve much more purpose than a screen for applicants and at most divide them into "good interview" vs. "ok interview" vs. "social reject." I feel like the application itself must still serve as the biggest factor as long as you don't screw up the interview, at least in IM. Thoughts?
