Is it a good idea to connect PD on linkedin. I happened to find the Pd who took my IV and sent her request. However, she has not accepted and it says someone from that particular program viewed your profile and now I am freaking out that I did the wrong thing.

Seems like most programs have sent the first wave of interviews. I wonder if there will be a second wave. I got 3 rejection and waitlist emails yesterday.

Just got an invite today with U Arkansas. No idea if it's part of the first wave or second wave (assuming there are waves), but I tend to think the latter.

You have 5 interviews! That's 5 chances to match. Nobody really knows how things are going to pan out this year so I wouldn't count myself out until December 2.

Did anyone ended up receiving an interview offer after being waitlisted ? I'm just wondering if that is possible this season

Did anyone get an interview from UC Davis? If so did they ever send out dates? Or just an interview offer??

Don’t know if anyone really knows the answer to this but —- any ideas if programs typically submit their ROL of candidates shortly after their interviews conclude or do they wait until closer to the deadline?

what does "filled" on the spread sheet mean? how would anyone know if a program is "filled" until after the match??

Also I only applied to about 20 programs and have 3 interviews so far...are my chances of not matching high?

thanks

hard to say. i guess it depends on how strong of a candidate u are, how well u “zoom interviewed”, whether or not u have a home program

Yes that would be very helpful. Any comments on Ohio state for rheumatology? Cleveland clinic? Rush program? Loyola program?

That’s really nice of you. I feel clear about top and bottom of my ROL but struggling with middle. Open minded about rheum career goals.

Any thoughts on any of these programs:
Westchester Medical Center
Albany
Hofstra/Northwell/Zucker
U of Texas San Antonio
USF
Emory

Hi

Do you have any input on the programs at Yale, UPMC , BIDMC and Georgetown and how they compare with each other ? Also for Cleveland Clinic and Emory- They both are big names but the sense I got was that these places are predominantly clinical programs and not big on doing any research and I wanted to know if that was your impression as well

Any insight would be super helpful!

Thank you

^I got good vibes from Ohio State.. I thought the PD seemed wonderful!

Cleveland Clinic of course has very strong rheum faculty.. most of them are leaders in the field. I just wish their interview day had been a little longer so I could have learned more about the program

It all depends what you want to do: clinical trials, outcomes research, bench research.

Some thoughts:
Yale is a basic research powerhouse.
BIDMC gives you access to collaborators across the city of Boston if you are creative.
Georgetown is not in the same tier, but if you are interested in OA, this may be the place for you.
Cleveland Clinic is a prominent program, focus on vasculitis.

you’re middle of the road programs seem to have a NE and southern flavor to them.

i think theyre all fine programs, and this is my own bias, but last year for my “middle of the ROL programs”, i ranked them based on
“us news ranking” and livability of city. i would also take into account “i would be willing to live in this area after i graduate“

me personally? id rank them as
emory
hofstra
san antonio/ usf
albany/weschester

again all great programs would be happy to go to any
