As we all sit and wait for news from programs, I was wondering if anyone had an interest in keeping a thread going regarding program interviews. 1. Wilmer 2. MEEI 3. Bascom 4. Jules Stein 5. Doheny 6. Sheie (UPenn) 7. Iowa 8. Wills 9. UCSF 10. NY Eye & Ear 11. Columbia 12. Cornell 13. Yale 14. Cleveland Clinic 15. Emory 16. Baylor 17. Tufts 18. Northwestern 19. U Chicago 20. U Washington 21. OHSU 22. Duke 23. Stanford 24. U Michigan 25. Einstein 26. Case Western 27. U Wisconsin Madison 28. Med Coll Wisc 29. Brown 30. Wash U In particular, I was wondering if people had begun to hear from the East Coast programs (like Wilmer, Wills, etc.) There's been a fair amount of "buzz" that this application year is looking to be quite competitive, is this a fair assessment of what some of you out there have heard? Since there aren't very many forums out there for people applying in ophtho, I thought starting a thread like this might help where people could possibly discuss their thoughts on particular programs and/or their experiences from interviews. Since I haven't had an interview yet (first one coming up next month in Iowa), I thought I'd pass some of the wait time by seeing how others of you out there are getting along. Best of luck to all the applicants!
