    Hey guys,
    I'm just thinking ahead here. I'll be interviewing in the fall and will also be taking a small, but crucial load of classes. I'll be taking PChem and two labs. The labs especially make it necessary for me to be at the university Monday , Tuesday and Wednesday of just about every week. So what this means for me is that i can really only interview on thursdays and fridays. So here's what i'm asking. Are there common days for med schools to interview for MD programs? What about the two-day MSTP interviews? Are they commonly toward the end of the week? And should my schedule be a problem? I'm sure there must be others out there with the same problem. Has it bothered y'all? Thanks- Gizz

    So far I've scheduled six regular MD interviews: four Fridays, one Thursday, and one Monday.

    Later in the week seems to be typical for interviews.

    Hope this helps!

    Most schools have Friday interviews. I think you'd be able to make it work. You might want to be extra-diligent about calling ahead to try and schedule same-area schools together on the two days you are totally free. I slacked off in this and ended up visiting some of the same cities twice or more. that kind of sucked (though I was grateful for the interviews).

    Most MD/PhD interviews occur on Thurs/Fridays.

    Yale is on Mon/Tues, Hopkins on Wed/Thurs. There are some other exceptions to the rule also but I cant remember what they are.

    I interviewed w/5 of my schools very early in the process and with the exception of GW (that did offer a Friday two months later) all were on Mondays. I usually requested Mondays though as I do research and it's the best day to miss lab meetings!

    Anyway, here are the schools were I interviewed and the days they offered for reference.

    Einstein: M-F
    GW: M,H,F
    MCP: M-F
    NYMC: M-H
    Temple: M-F
