I haven't received any IVs so far. I want to to start emailing them already but I think it would be futile. I would wait till the end of October. Most hospitals started reviewing applications yesterday. There is nothing we or they can do.

It is suggested to wait 4 to 6 weeks after you apply before contacting programs you haven't heard anything from. You need to give them time to look through their pool of applications.
