    When is interview season for AUA postions? For AOA positions?

    Just curious because I'm making my schedule for this upcoming year and I'm curious which months I should be expecting to be flying around for the interviews I really hope I'll be getting.

    (P.S. this was my 4,000th post. I hope thats good luck for my urology chances)

    November is the busiest interview month. There will be some interviews in Dec (most people are done by mid-Dec,) and a handful of programs have interviews in late Oct.

    hmm, so it would be better to take a vacation month in November than December?

    Depends what rotation you would be taking instead. I took Radiology (unlimited excused absences for interviews) in November, took December off, and took a clinic-based (= weekends off + a few days for interviews if necessary) elective in October. I had 2 interviews in October: One was on a weekend and the other was excused no problem. FWIW: I also took Step 2 CK + CS in October.

    I've got anesthesiology in November, but I could switch it to December and take vacation in November (I think).

    Do you guys think December is too late to be taking Step 2?

    No, but I know I was pretty beat after interview season and didn't want to do much of anything. I can't imagine that I would've been real enthused to take Step 2, but I imagine that I would've gotten it done if that was the best option for me.
