Hmm...yet you did not rank them. Hey you're interested in dermpath these days, right?yaah said:Plus, one of their residents is really cute.
I heard this as well which was still kinda surprising though. Then there are the 12 applicants from Jefferson as well . When I had lunch with some of the residents, they told me that most or all of these Jefferson folks do a month at Penn. They thought a lot of them were really cool and they were disappointed that many of them didn't get an interview this year at Penn.EvilTaz said:I can confirm that there are a lot of MD and MD/PhD students who are applying for path this year - but I think that Penn did not interview everyone from Penn because they did not want to be exclusive.
Totally! Lots of smart folks at Penn but they were all really really cool. The dynamic and interactions during the conferences impressed me very much; the faculty and residents are serious about pathology but still know how to joke around and enjoy themselves. It was a great atmosphere there.EvilTaz said:A hidden plus is that Penn places a lot of emphasis on getting residents who are personable and collegial. They have no problems rejecting someone they think is an a-hole even if they are destined to cure cancer and diabetes, and moving people up on their list because everyone thought they would work well with others in the department. All the residents I know are great, none are toxic.
