- we set an appointment a week prior. 15 mins before the IV they sent me an email saying that they have added me on skype. i texted them and they said that they will call me shortly.

- it was the interviewer who i saw first and he introduced himself first (it was assisstant PD) we talked for 20 mins then he introduced one of the residents who was listening and taking notes. then we talked for 10 more minutes.

anyway, i think if you're relaxed and prepared then a skype IV is in your favor. they don't get to assess your eye contact and body language.

you're the only one who i heard was offered a skype IV other than myself.
to be honest i was offered this IV thro a connection in the program.

could you tell me if you have the same situation and when did you apply?

i understand that there's a certain notion about people not sharing such info but i don't mind asking any others questions.
good luck!
