Default Finally done !

Just got done with all the interviews. It's crazy how in the beginning I couldn't wait for them to begin and during my last interview I was just hoping it would get over with ! If the program offers second looks and your interested ALWAYS go for it. It shows your interested and you get to meet more people. I lucked out and got to round with the program director himself during one of my second looks. So just thought I would share.

Completed 11 interviews. Unfortunately I am still working so can't kick back and relax yet. But will think about my rank list. I interviewed at the following places and I will write a interview experience for each shortly:

1. University of Maryland Midtown Campus.
2. Union Memorial Hospital
3. Good Sam (Merging with Union)
4. Raritan Bay MC in NJ
5. Prince George in MD.
6. Sinai Grace Hospital DMC - Detroit.
7. Coney Island - Brooklyn
8. SUNY Downstate - Brooklyn
9. St. Luke's Roosevelt - Manhattan
10. Jersey Shore MC - NJ
11. Cooper University -- NJ.

Good luck to everyone ! Any inputs on the rank list will be highly appreciated

Good luck... my advise would be to rank them of course for personal preference, but then, I would prioritize in this order:
1)University Hospitals
2)Community - University Affiliated
3)Community Hospitals.

Remember that the place where you did your training, will influence the position that you will be offered later.
