Yeah I've been wondering the same thing. That site was an excellent resource when I applied a couple years ago and I wonder what I am going to do without it this time around. In addition, people aren't really filling out SDNs feedback forms much either so there aren't many alternatives at this point. I'm sure with all the people on SDN that interviewed over the past year, SDNs interview feedback forms could become just as good of a resource if people would only take a brief moment to fill them out.

I guess this would be a good time then to kindly ask anybody that interviewed over the past application cycle to please take a brief moment and fill out feedback for the schools that they interviewed at. You can do that here:

SDN Interview Feedback

I think it would also help if maybe Lee or one of the moderators could put a big fat link to the interview feedback page on the pre-allo forums since I think most people bookmark the forums but not the actual hompage where the link exists. This could really help all of us new applicants this cycle.

Silver, I can hear the crickets chirping in this thread. Not sure if anyone is adding to the feedback since you posted this.

I'm telling you, the best way is for Lee to put a big fat link to it at the top on the pre-allo forums. That way when people come to pre-allo for info they'll also click on the link as well and add their interview info to the feedback.

Remembering how interviewfeedback.com worked, most relevant feedback came from applicants during the interview season. Right now I think its a dead issue since most people are starting med school soon and are doing other things. Interview feedback is probably the last thing on their minds. Lets just make sure all CURRENT applicants know about it.

Oh and.... BUMP

Saw a trickle of feedback which is nice but we could use more. Still no schools on that list with double digit feedback responses. Come on guys, we got to build it up!

On a related note, I checked in at interviewfeedback.com and saw that the guy running it has updated the page and NEEDS A SITE TO HOST THE DATABASE. WOW, now I'm thinking SDN would be perfect for this but I'm not sure if Lee knows about it.


Oh yeah, one more thing.....BUMP

Yeah but I think Lee is on vacation right now so we'll see when he gets back. The guy running interviewfeedback.com looks like he's willing to have another site host his database and SDN would be the perfect place for this as I mentioned before.

i just looked over at the interviewfeedback.com website. here's what he wrote:

I am attempting to find a home for the database at this point, since I realize the admissions season approaches quickly. I thank those of you who have written to offer help debugging the software or host the site. For now I will not take anyone's offer of debugging help, but I would appreciate hearing from those of you interested in hosting these pages. Thank you for your interest. I remain committed to providing this service to the medical school community.

Sincerely,

Graham Redgrave, MD
Editor and Publisher



perhaps we could just take all his stuff! i wrote up all my interviews on his site, but it's been so long that i've forgotten all the details.
