Unhappy Getting nervous!


I have applied to 109 Psychiatry program, so far I have gotten 4 interviews (UAB, LSU, St. Elizabeths, Uni of Toledo) but for the past 2 weeks, I haven't gotten any more interviews?! I heard a bulk of the interviews come in the middle to end Oct, but it's already mid-Oct. I was hoping for 10 interviews. Is it still early? Do more interviews come until Nov?

Thank you!

Only 1 IV can get you a residency. The interviews that you have are pretty good places. Congrats for that.
Aiming for a specific no of interviews won't get you anywhere. It would just increase your anxiety. 4/109 is a pretty good ratio.
And yes more interviews come in Nov. They run up till January, but its different for every candidate. Don't always expect that you will get something in January.
