WashU - one of the best programs in the nation with high volumes and big namesWhat are thoughts on ranking the following, interested in interventional:
Mayo is 3 years. It’s geared towards academic cardiology.WashU - one of the best programs in the nation with high volumes and big names
Michigan - big volume, big names
Beaumont - has one of the best interventional fellowships
Minnesota - good volumes
Colorado - low volumes, expensive
Mayo - good if you want to be a researcher or super specialized, low autonomy from what I've heard, ? 4 year program
Utah - worse state in the nation, also low volumes, lots of tpa from what I've heard
and also to add on to this question. what should I say in the email that I do send to my #1? Aside from telling them they are my top choice should I be reiterating the talking points of why they are my number 1? or simply just send a short and concise email.So what’s everyone’s thoughts about sending interest emails to programs that you really like which aren’t number one on the ROL? Would it help to say “ranking you highly,” but implying they’re not number one or just keep silent for these programs? I’ve heard mixed responses regarding this.
I heard this from a few programs when I applied four years ago. Take anything said with a huge huge grain of salt. They are not obligated to tell the truth.Have programs started to reach out to applicants? Also is that truly a thing that programs call/email applicant that they are ranking them? Also is it a more common practice with smaller programs or pretty much across the board?
Thoughts on this anyone?and also to add on to this question. what should I say in the email that I do send to my #1? Aside from telling them they are my top choice should I be reiterating the talking points of why they are my number 1? or simply just send a short and concise email.
I think short and concise is most realistic. Expressing continued interest and maybe a short/ unique reason as to why your interest should be considered on their part when creating their ROL. Personally, I did something similar for residency and thankfully matched my top choice.Thoughts on this anyone?
I have not, but I would take it seriously, no one calls you for an interview unless they consider you as an excellent candidate. Good Luck!Received a last minute off the waitlist interview.... super grateful but wondering if I really have a shot at this program ? Feels likes I am just interviewing to be ranked last :/.
anyone heard of any stories of people matching despite coming off a waitlist interview ?
