Here's my new question for everyone: I have visited scutwork.com a LOT. I have read a LOT of reviews from ALL specialties. What I have noted is this: most reviews are fairly bland or 'good' (4s and 5s). Every now and again, someone posts something bad about a residency program. This is immediately followed by six posts with 5 stars talking about the fact that the program is excellent and has no problems and people love it and are orgasmic about coming into work each day. Or at worst people will say "it's tough, but that's what you expect". 1) Do you guys think that the reviews accurately reflect the pluses and minuses of the programs? 2) Do you think that people feel uncomfortable writing badly about their programs? Or do you think that most programs really are pretty good? (If that's the case, why does everyone ask what are the strengths and weaknesses of the program at interview time?) 3) I have met many residents who say that "honestly, there is nothing wrong with my program ...I can't think of a single thing ...well, maybe they could deodorize the call room, but that's it". I tend to not believe someone who says there is NOTHING wrong with their program ...am I a doofus?
