Communication Phone call from resident

Hi
I got a phone call from a current resident from a program that I have applied to. The resident just asked me few simple questions.
Is is normal to receive such calls from programs? Does it mean that they might be considering you for an IV?

We cant help you unless you tell us what kind of questions they asked. Was it medical questions? Was it about you?

Very difficult to say..

No medically related questions.

I suspect its a "screening" call - to take you to the next step - reviewing you application.

Did they schedule the phone interview with you before hand? Or they just called when you were taking a shower?
