Default Programs calling?

Hi

Since i'm not in the US, i'd like to ask if programs have the tendency to call before offering an IV? If this is the case I may be in trouble because there's no way for programs to know how to make international calls!

I know of several people that stated that program coodinators called them to set up interviews. Every program is different.

I personally haven't received any phone calls, only direct emails and ERAS Message system messages.
