The First Week After Submitting
Getting That First Interview Invite
… And That Program Earns A Special Place In Your Heart Forever.
Especially Since No Other Program Seems To Like You
… Until One Day…
When You Get 17 Interview Offers….
… In 3 Hours.
And You Try To Fit All Their Restrictive Interview Date “Choices” Into Your Calendar
… But Mathematically, It Doesn’t Work.
QUICK: DECIDE YOUR LIFE PATH WITHOUT VISITING ANY OF THESE PLACES
And Now You Have To Write Horribly Complicated Emails Declining Those Precious Interviews
And You Still Aren’t Guaranteed To Match
… Welcome To ERAS 2013-2014.
I can’t figure out if it’s a good or a bad thing that our interviewing process is nothing like that…
Holy crap! That’s awesome! Congrats!
Congrats on all of the interviews.
You’ll survive it. Everyone does somehow.
I totally felt similarly when my CaRMS stuff started… Such a rollercoaster and so ridiculous.
Captured my day today PERFECTLY. Three more interview offers this afternoon!? F#@&!
Hehe are these the things that I have to look forward to!? Congrats p.s.
17 in 3 hours??? i clearly applied to the wrong specialty. i switch to yours.
(also, there are definitely worse problems to have. sounds like there’s no way you’ll have a problem matching!)
Congratulations on the 17 interviews. That’s pretty awesome!
This is hilarious! Great blog!
LOL. great! From a veteran medical school residency interview specialist that’s awesome. I wonder how you felt when you got the 17th one. lol
Ok. This has been bothering me for months. What movie is the “Wait, what?” gif from? I know I’ve seen it.
