How do programs notify you for interview invites? I would assume by e-mail? Do any programs actually call you?

Members don't see this ad.
 
My invites were all e-mailed via ERAS. I recommend responding to the invites as soon as possible because some programs send out more invites than actual interview spots.

Fixed it for you there in bold.

You need to be responding to interview offers in a matter of hours (like 2-3, not 24-48). If you don't have a Blackberry/iPhone/Android/whatever that checks your mail constantly, you need to be checking it every 3-4 hours during interview season (9/1 - 2/28 or so).

Interview invitations go like hotcakes. You need to get on the calendar ASAP. Programs are more likely to change an interview date than they are to offer an "overbook" spot to somebody who put off scheduling.
