Just wondering if anyone out there applied to UCLA-Harbor. I was presuming they're in ERAS as it was an option to transmit your app to them, but they haven't downloaded my app yet and on FREIDA it says they're not part of ERAS, but I remember on NRMP or somewhere it said they were. I was just confused. Oh, are all the UCLA affiliates like UCLA-SFV, UCLA-Harbor considered similar in competitiveness under UCLA as one division or ?

Sorry guy, I did not apply there. I think info in freida sometimes is not updated.

Some programs that I applied to have not d/l my application yet, eg. boston u, mayo, ucsf, nyu, u penn.

Did u apply to u mass, OSU and u of virgenia. They d/l my application on 11/16!!! How is it possible? Is something wrong with the eras system? I'm just afraid that they have not got my application.

Not really familiar with it, but I know you can do 2-yr tracks in heme or med onc aside from the traditional 3-yr combined track. Still waiting on UCSF, UCLA-SFV to download.

UCSF, NYU, U CHICAGO, MAyo and Cornell haven't downloaded yet...am also waiting for 2 of my LOR to be uploaded as well, which may be the reason some of the programs haven't uploaded the application as it is incomplete...
as i only recently found out, interview season varies significantly for the different programs, between January and some only starting in april until end of may..
anyone else heard of any of the programs they applied to?

Hello everyone,

I want to apologize to "hemonc" in advance for picking a name that is so similar. That being said, I am also applying to hemeonc programs this year. According to the ERAS guidelines, the programs are not suppose to download the pictures unless they have offered interviews. Does this only apply to residency programs or fellowship as well? (because most of the programs I've applied to have d/l'd my picture). Thanks in advance.

Congratulations! Did you get your all of your LOR's in before they extended the invitation for interview? I still have 2 letters that are not loaded in yet and so I'm getting a bit worried.

re BIDMC....they uploaded my last 2 letters on monday morning...
re calling programs: I think the larger programs only started to look through the applications and will start inviting in the next 2 weeks. so I would hold it before becoming nervous.
However, if there are programs you are especially interested, it makes sense to email the PD to his OWN email (check contact info on publications ;-)) and indicate your interest...without asking about the status...just kinda "this is me and what i have done...and I like your program...and these are the poeple/reasons why"...I did that with some and got a nice response from each

Finally a thread for hem/onc applicants.

I have applied to several programs out west (OHSU, Colorado, a few CA programs), many midwest, south (UVa, Emory, Vandy) and East (NYU, MSKCC, Columbia, VT, Dartmouth, Yale).

All programs have downloaded my app info except Emory as of 12/24/05.

Regarding the guy who heard from Yale, was that for heme or onc? It's separate there.

Also include me in the BWH rejection list.

Will post once I hear from places. My program director here states he will not be looking at onc applications till next week.

Hey S,

It was for med onc. Best of luck in the process! I'm sure most of us are getting anxious waiting to hear.

hey vrgk,

trust me - i feel yr pain. however, my heme/onc program didn't even start looking at the applications yet. most of the responses are coming from very few programs, especially those that are not participating in ERAS. so sit tight and good luck!

I agree with the above. I think it is still too early to be hearing from most programs as the interview season for most programs extends into late March/early April given it's both ERAS- and NRMP-based. Neither the heme nor the onc program here has looked at applications yet.

Be patient....I'm trying hard and I truly empathize.

I am also curious as to what your background is. Do you mind letting know...I'll keep it a closely guarded secret...
Thanks again, and good luck...
