I guess we're the 2 lone wolves who are interested enough in posting on this site...I don't know if that's from lack of interest in sharing info, or lack of people applying!

Have you hit the interview trail yet?

I had 1 so far, with a few pending.
Notified by the following so far:
Iowa
Wills
Bascom Palmer
Pitt
Penn/Scheie
Mt. Sinai
UC Davis
Utah
Yale
OHSU/Devers

It's required a bit of juggling to make arrangements to go to these, but I hope I'll hear good news in December!

I went to Iowa last month. They were extremely nice, and the format was informal. No difficult questions. Not much emphasis on research. The drawbacks to me were 1. little to no cataract surgery, 2. homogeneous patient population, 3. small town. Obviously, the faculty are outstanding, and it would still be a great place to train. The current fellow Reid is a great guy, and will answer any questions you ask with total honesty. I hope you enjoy your visit!
