    Do not underestimate how much can be gleaned from the brief interview. I always screen out a few psychopaths each year via interview (im sure others are missed). Here are the things we cat get from your interview: your interpersonal and communication skills, your commitment and interest in psychiatry and working with the mentally ill, whether you would be a good fit for the program, how much you actually know about the program and your level of interest coming here, and whether you have leadership potential. The interview also provides a chance for a more in depth review of your application and for certain applicants a chance to explain any deficiencies and highlight any strengths.

    I've been in departments that are large and unwieldy and so one of the things I'm always looking for is whether someone will be able to hack it without structure and isn't looking for handholding and parenting (which an alarming number of students seem to be).

    Hi Splik, What do you mean by handholding and parenting? Ability to work independently?

    There are some programs that are known for coddling their residents. And there are a lot of applicants that seem to want surrogate mothers/fathers in the program directors. there are those programs out there, but such applicants would not be a good fit for large unwieldy departments where that level of support does not exist. conversely there are people who would feel suffocated and annoyed at being at programs where there's all that coddling and hand holding. Hopefully no program expects beginning residents to work independently - ideally there should be a gradation in supervision so interns receive a lot of supervision and senior residents largely fly solo with more targeted input to hone their skills.

    Ok. This is driving me crazy, so I guess I'll just ask here and stop speculating...
    One program has placed me on "hold" and another two have placed me on "waitlist"... what the hell does this mean? Is there a realistic chance of being called for an interview?

    I believe that it means that you may or may not receive an interview depending on whether there are cancellations.

    I am rejected for a visa that means I can't come to US to have an interview that automatically makes me ineligible for match process...I had a few interviews and step3 exam, but those didn't help to get a visa. I am so down and feel hopeless. Any suggestion or insight for my career that i can do outside the US for couple of years?

    I have 3. ( gone to 1) plus some waitlists. (Only applied at 70)

    My friend with almost identical stats (same school, both step scores within <5 pts. He has 8, but he applied to more and he did not exclude NYC). He and I are both also waiting for cs scores.

    Thank you for the congrats. Instead of focusing on there being only three, I'm just trying to make them the best 3. And yes, I am an IMG. (More specifically a US-Big3 Caribbean ms4 non-traditional)

    Got an invite to the waitlist a few weeks ago, changed to scheduled last week. There were no other interview spots available and just a few waitlists left.

    Anyone else get interview invitations at really weird times? I thought it was a M-F, 9-5 sort of thing, but I've had II's roll in on weekends and evenings too when I wasn't expecting to check my email, resulting in some delayed interview scheduling. What's the deal with this? Are PC's really working weekends and evenings during interview season?

    Some people do work after hours but often they deliberately have the emails timed to send out at evening/weekends etc to avoid a barrage of emails/calls etc

    Is there even a chance we'll receive interviews after Thanksgiving? Seems to me invitations and correspondence have really died down for a while now...

    There's still a chance but I think it's getting more and more unlikely.

    That being said if there is a program that you're highly interested in, it doesn't hurt to send them an interest email. I sent a couple recently and was told that they will contact me if any spots open up!

    I've contacted some programs and was told the same on some... it sounds to me like it's a "don't call us, we'll call you" rejection lol. But who knows!

    So has anyone else gotten an interview since November started? Just curious because all my interviews came really early in the app process (before MSPEs were released) and I thought I'd get a little love after that, especially because more than one of my interviewers have said my MSPE was more impressive than they were expecting it to be.

    I got one (off the waitlist, I'm assuming) after sending a love letter to the program. No spontaneous invites since early October.

    None since the 2nd week in October. Really not expecting anymore at this point. I haven't sent love letters or contacted programs at all and don't plan to.

    Is it possible you just applied to programs that didn't wait for MSPE release before inviting applicants? The invites I got after it was released were only programs that specifically waited for it.

    I got one second week of Nov. It does appear that there has been a sizable uptick in applicants this year though. I’ve been told that an increase in applicants coming from the home institutions of several highly competitive academic programs has also led to a decrease in interview spots since the # of total IIs offered has not changed substantially

    Only 1 in November. Don't think I'll get anymore, but you never know.

    Same here. No ERAS offers since 10/20. The only offer I received in November was from a visiting rotation while I was there.

    Thanks for the responses everyone. Just curious because I've gotten so few responses since mid-Oct, only a waitlist and a rejection or two. I just thought I'd hear more given the number of places I applied.

    Given the number of programs I applied to, I'd be shocked if that were the case. There were also several programs that had no interviews on this thread that suddenly had 2-3 within a few days of MSPEs getting released, so I'm sure I applied to plenty that waited for MSPE to be released. I'm just surprised I hadn't heard more in general since mid-October (positive or negative) and that the programs I contacted about my interest in them about a week ago said they were still reviewing ERAS apps.

    Do you have enough to match? A handful may trickle in late with cancellations or procrastinating PCs/PDs, but many invites are already out.

    Guys don't worry, there's typically a second batch of interviews being sent out once people start canceling. I think 2 years ago I got at least 5-6 interviews after November?

    I've gotten 3 invites this month which is definitely 2/2 cancellations. Be patient -- more are coming. I've personally canceled 2 in the past week. The more that people cancel = programs need to hit their quota for invites

    US IMG. 5 interviews, 1 was from application process and the other 4 were solicited by emailing programs directly, aka nagging. 1 waitlist also, so ~6.

    If I hadn't emailed for the additional interviews, I'd only have 1 interview -- so show your interest if you haven't already**. GL everyone :luck:

    **EDIT: Within reason of course -- don't email 20+ places :eek:

    I’ve been wondering about this. How likely do y’all think we would be to go from an interview waitlist to matchable position? Say a program interviews 80 people, and they have to go down to #30 on their ranklist to fill all of their positions. One person cancels, so you get an invite to interview off their waitlist. So you’re essentially going in as their 80th choice, and have to work your way up to #30 to get a spot there. I know PDs all say “we only interview people we’re serious about ranking” but it still seems kinda unlikely to me. Anybody know of anyone who matched somewhere they were initially waitlisted?

    Since some programs go unfilled it seems there have to be cases where being a program's last choice could still result in a match there

    Happens all the time. At many programs, the limiting factor is the number of interview spots, not the number of applicants that would make solid residents.
