Thank you for making this! super helpful +5
What's an interview broker? < website some programs use to schedule interviews
What are "Apps of Steel"?It's like Otomatch for IR/DR peeps.
In the IV offers tab, is "total # spots" the number of interviews that they've offered? Not the number of spots in the program, right?as in if you've gotten an interview from that school add 1 to the total #. just trying to keep track of how many people on here have heard back from the respective programsThanks! Avoid UW - Seattle surgery like the plague. Zero teaching/training. Malignant af. It's a sweatshop filled with backstabbing. It'll be the worst year of your life. Don't apply. Don't let your classmates apply.< really? more details please? was highly considering it..< could also be someone who is using scare tactics, go to the interview and see for yourself
Lenox Hill's invitation message was from ERAS. It said to "email" and pick 2 dates. Does this mean reply in ERAS or e-mail that person directly? (I'd have to find their e-mail, as it was not included in the e-mail).For Lenox hill- were you internal? what specialty are you? Thanks so much! Also to answwer your question I would probably find the person's email. and if i didnt hear back within 2 days then ERAS message< I just replied in ERAS yesterday and got a confirmation today with my interview date. Internal medicine prelim<- are you an internal applicant from an affiliated-school w/ Lenox Hill? Nope
Any idea when the latest date to take Step 2 CS is (without facing consequences for TY/IM prelim programs)?You should take it before the end of December. In the rare case that you fail, that gives you time to get your score back and schedule another time and then for the score to come back before you are required to have it before start of intern year.
any idea if we are supposed to get rejection letters in case we applied somwhere but have not been granted an interview?Some programs will ghost you, some will send a rejectionThanks!
Has anyone heard anything about the prelim in Weatherford, Texas? Is it nice?I really wanted an IV here, mainly because I'm from the area but my school is a long way away which I suspect may keep me outI'm from a small town by there too!
So I got a message through ERAS from a program saying they would like to offer me an interview, but no instructions on how to pick a date. Should I assume it will come through the "Interviews" section of ERAS at some point?It did come up on ERAS FYI
Did you guys have medicine chair letters?No x17yes x15nothey will write one but it is not uploaded yet... doesn't seem to matter, got invites anywayYes (added at left) but at the hospital I did my IM clerkship, not my home institution
Naturally somebody meesed up the appliant info sheet alreadylol
are you a home student (from within the program: aka medical student, rotated at the hospital, etc)
Anyone know anything about Northwell Staten Island? +2
Just got an email from Jacobi MC on "Why Prelim Internal Medicine at JMC." Do they want just a paragraph of why or does this have to be a pseudo-supplement to a Personal Statement?So strange I just got this. I wrote a paragraph. I feel like they've been hacked because this is the vaguest email everSame here. Has anyone heard back from them?Same
I am so sad. I received none so far. Is it normal?< In the same boat brah< +14Same, but none of my programs have sent invites per this spread sheetwhat are the odds of SOAPing into prelim if you match to the main speciality?There were like >100 unmatched prelim spots last year. I wouldn't worryYeah data up top looks like you should be able to SOAP into a surgical prelim super easy if nothing else
Looks like the ”categorical IM” link is for TY. Can someone give the link for the categorical one? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nZFNdyiVo9CoFsC0QMy_8WNSF-ZPm8DxXIC8Vfj5OWQ/edit#gid=617331436

anyone know anything about redmond TY program in Rome, GA? curriculum?I interviewed there and really enjoyed it. Its not a tyipcal super chill TY you will work and learn a lot. 3 months of electives if i remember correctly but I really liked the faculty and thought it would be a good place for a year.

Anyone know what SF Kaiser prelim medicine is like?Also would like to know this< I'll take your interview and let you knowis the program chill or intense? lol
Anyone know anything about Kennestone? Is it a new program?
I recieved a TY invite from the Macon, GA program today around 1:30 EST. I replied almost immediately via ERAS with my preferred date, and I haven‘t recieved a confirmation yet. How long does it usually take programs to respond via ERAS? Thanks!if you pick your date on eras, i think thats your confirmation<— well, it didnt pop up under the interview tab. The dates were in a message in the message center. She didn’t give an alternate email to reply with, so I assume I was just supposed to reply via eras 🤷🏼‍♀️same boat... it was confusing.. I just replied<— did anyone hear back about their interview date yet?

Not getting any invites (a couple TY and prelim have gone out I applied to) - strong app with 265+ steps and solid clinical grades, LOR, research. Should I wait or apply to a bunch more? Anybody else in this boat?i would give time,, programs could be going in alphabetical order, or rolling, or by geographica area, or hobbies who knows Pretty confused also, no invites but specialty invites are comingwhat about today - oct 1? still not getting any and freaking out.Same boat havent gotten any yet. Solid application I thought...

Any specialty threads for gen surg?
Thoughts on sending letters of intent to programs this early, based on location preferences?<- wondering also. (massachusetts where are you!!)
Anyone know about St Agnes in Fresno? They have a nice compensation and benefits (free food and stuff it seems), but I don't know if this is a chill program or not...New program started this year and doesn't sound chill from their website: "Saint Agnes Resident Dr. Jerrica Mueller said, "They work us almost 80 hours a week. But really, it's hands-on training-- from the moment we get here we have preceptors that guide us and so they really want to see us succeed.""is it less/more chill than ucsf fresno?
so do we have to go to mixers or not?<Was wondering the same thing!

Anyone know anything about the JPS TY in Fort Worth? All the threads online are kinda old, but i've heard good thingsHeard its not as good as it once was from a former resident but n=1JPS TY is not chill at all by TY standards, basically an IM year
If I don't match into my specialty, but I do a Medicine prelim, is it possible to apply into medicine the following year? Or can I switch my application from prelim to categorical? from my understanding, prelim is a one year spot only, you'd have to re-enter the match the following year, either by finding a PGY2 spot or redoing intern year at a categorical positionYes, if it is prelim medicine, you supposedly can start from year 2 for IM without losing time.it depends on the program if they let you continue to IM or not.
Happy October 1st everyone! May the odds be in our favor< are they actually coming out because i havent gotten any< I think in reality they'll take a few days to go through our many apps
