    I was interviewed in my first-choice program several days ago and wrote back a letter expressing my eagerness to join the program. The PD did not show up in the interview due to the mishap of his family . However, his letter totally put me down.

    "Hi,
    Thank you for your note. I am glad you had a good day despite all the last
    minute changes (myself and Dr. xx being unavailable). There is so many
    things to show in 1 day.

    I hope you had a safe trip home. Take care and good luck with the match."

    any opinion on this? What should I do next? It seems that the program is not interested in me at all.

    I wouldn't read too much into it. He's just being courteous, but not stating too much. (Nor should he, in writing at least.) Your letter expressing your interest can't hurt, and will be taken into account when they rank the applicants. Don't be discouraged. In my experience, whenever you think things look bleaker than they really are, you are bound to get a pleasant surprise in the end. It would be worse to get a false sense of security somewhere and end up not matching there. Good luck with the match.
