Makes interviewing easier
Easy to use. Can sign up immediately after receiving email. Can see calendar of all dates. Sign up for the wait list. Be notified right away if a date opens up. And get a confirmation immediately. Much much better than trying to call a program (good luck if its they're in another time zone), worry if someone else called before you, and sound polite while bringing up your own calendar so you don't double schedule. Much appreciated!
Why did no one think of this earlier?
This is a great, easy to use interface for residency interview scheduling and management. My only complaint is that not every program has converted over yet!
Asinine Waitlist Scheme
Their pooled waitlist is asinine as it means you have to scramble (slots fill almost immediately) and compete for an interview slot with everyone on the waitlist. It creates unneeded stress and is disrespectful to those just trying to get an interview. An ordered list seems more fair than just letting who ever can drop whatever they’re doing in the moment get the slot. This company should be ashamed of themselves.
