Program Directors Program Directors Statements

how much weight do statements like the following hold :
- "I think more clinical experience would be good for you" from a PD (does it mean NO)
- "You're a great fit here, be sure to rank us high" from a PC
- "it would be an honor to train you" from a PD
- "this is the place for you" from a PD

Confusing stuff

It means that you should rank your program where you would like to go, and not based on who said what. Programs are just trying to sell themselves.

Confusing stuff
1. Not a bad statement all applicantas are looking for mor clinical experience
2. Very positive statement, sounds kind of generic
3. This ones is really good, seems like the real deal
4. Standard recruitment phrase

Seems like they are all positive comments about you

Good luck
