    Do ya'll find that interview invitations come mostly on Mondays? That's been my experience mostly, as far as emails go. Got one on a Tuesday, that being said, and one in the mail on a Saturday. But I think mostly Mondays. What's your experience?

    Mine were one via mail on a Saturday, and the other via e-mail on a Sunday. But 2 interviews aren't much to go on.

    Here's hoping some more come to us this week, on whichever day. :luck:

    Actually, I think I've received an interview invite almost every day of the week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday except for Monday.

    I haven't really noticed a pattern except that I think I got 2 on Sundays. The rest have been totally scattered throughout the week (and throughout the season, actually).

    Most of my e-mail ones came on friday, and then one on monday, and one on wed. I have no clue when the mailed ones came, because they go to my parents' house.

    i don't think they come on certain days, but at certain times: every one of my email invites has come when i'm not obsessively checking my email for them (i.e. when i'm out for lunch).

    this has led me to formulate the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle Of Medical School E-Mail Invitations To Interview (HUPOMSEMITI): one cannot simultaneously check one's email and receive an interview invite whilst checking said email

    that totally sounds like a good name for a band's album - HUPOMSEMITI.

    If anybody starts this band - can I be the guy that plays the tamborine? I know this position is normally reserved for a stoned groupie with large breasts, but come on - I'll play that tamborine so well, it will make you cry. I'll even learn to spell tamborine if you let me in the band.
