I thought it may be useful for people to know the potential interview dates at different programs.

Yep, based on the other list, NYU sent out the invites today.

How are you guys planning these interviews? Are you replying back right away to get an interview spot or are you waiting on other invites to plan a little better geographical travel itinerary? Should I just set the interview up as soon as I get the invite? and how many months are you guys taking off I just have one. Should you still schedule invites during a rotation? How many more questions can I fit into this post? Probably a lot more, but I will stop now, and DrN20 I would help with the interview dates, but I have to actually start receiving interview invites before I can post the dates for everyone else to see. :laugh:

I am not an expert, since I am going through this my first time as well. But I do know that you need to contact the programs very quickly, especially if you have specific dates you want. I responded to UT San Antonio 3 days after the request and already, most dates in October were filled. I called UT Galveston the next day and got the date I wanted. I heard that UC San Diego fills ALL interview spots in 24 hours and UC Davis in 48 hours. Its always first-come first-serve so jump on the dates immediately. Ideally, its best to schedule a few geographically, but you may not have the luxury. I got lucky and have San Antonio and Galveston back-to-back. Good luck.

might be a bit off the topic...but just wondering..

i have set up a light elective for the month of november and december. currently doing my elective in gas. finished my step 2 and submitted apps on the first day. just waiting for offers at this point. would it be a crazy idea to take a trip out of the country in october? can you respond to interview offers and all correspondence through email ? or do you really need to be in constant phone contact to be on top of things? just burned out by the past few months... and could use a nice vacation to recharge the batteries before the interview season starts.

thanks all...!

Sure, I do not see why you wouldnt go out of the country in October as long as you have access to email. My boyfriend just left for a month rotation in Scotland so he is doing the same thing. I have gotten 9/10 interviews by email. So maybe just ask someone get your mail every few days...and then email you if the return address says ____ Anesthesia Department. Most programs say the prefer you to email a few dates that you would be interested in rather than phone.

Have fun on your trip!

Hey,
Have you folks heard if there was an advantage to interviewing late?
My friend was telling me that by interviewing later, selection committee members will have a fresh impression of the applicant.
However, in my mind I felt that the interviewer will be tired of doing interviews by the end of the season and has heard enough of what applicants have to say.

wt do you think?

Sorry that this is not the most appropriate forum to post this. I couldn't find an answer anywhere.

They only offered 3 dates in November so far, so it seems that they are offering the interviews in stages. I'm sure there will be more dates, but it makes this post less helpful. And there is dinner before. No hotel.
