Limited Time from school to make interviews


Is there a way to learn more about how happy people are at a given residency program without going on the interview? My school strictly limits the amount of time I can take off for interviews during each rotation. As a result, I need to make some choices about which interviews are more worthy than others and am unsure how to proceed.

Thank you for all of your guidance! Your personal statement series helped me to make a statement that truly reflects me!


Your interviews are the MOST important thing you can do! I do care if they ‘Only give you a certain amount of time.”  You MUST make the time. this is MUCH more imporantant than any arbitrary limit of time on your interviews from schools. As such. to hell with their rules. Protect yourself.

You are the one who is going to have to live, for a  long time, with the outcome of you interviews’

1. Explain it to the local clerkship director

2. Generally he/She will agree.

3. IF they do NOT agree, then YOU must take the situation into your own hands and do as many interviews as you see fit.

Seriously, what a bunch of assholes@!

It is not at if you were going to the movies or something

    It happens for those who are for example of F1 or student visa. This way, you are obligated to complete particular hours in your school.
    But hours are usually around 22 hours a week. Some schools are more srtict though, like those of MPH programs.
    It’s agood confusion though to wonder which interview to choose!
    I’m starving for only one interview!

    Thanks so much for your response! I’ll do what I must to attend enough interviews to find the right match. I hope I won’t have to resort to item #3!
