    Wow I thought it was just me. LOL... Yep I am guilty of checking my status at least two times a day. The other time is spent thinking about the interview and hoping I get a call not an email. Tic Toc Tic Toc.

    Hey gang,

    I interviewed wednesday after working a 12 the night before. Not the best idea but it seemed to go quite well. Praying for everyone who interviewed. Don't stress, be confident in where God has brought you and where he is leading you. Take care!

    hey gang,

    i have been telling myself the same thing! "keep the faith" but this is because i honestly believe(d) that i "aced the interview" on wednesday. it went really well, everybody's body language was saying, "we love you!" (smiling, nodding in agreement to my responses, etc.).

    then i just read the last couple of pages here and see that most of those interviewed feel pretty much the same way! guess i wasn't so special after-all! haha

    i sent "thank-you emails, and received a response back from one of the interviewers who wrote:

    "[font=lucida console]it was my pleasure to meet with you and discuss your possible future career at scripps. good luck to you in your professional endeavors and may our paths meet again!"

    i've read it 10 times and can't decide if it's a "formed response" sent to all who send "thank you" emails, or if it's actually a "soft rejection" letter!

    what do you all think? did anybody else receive the above reply in response to your "thank you for the interview...." email?

    I sent out my thank you's but it was after close of business on friday so I doubt I will hear back before monday.

    Who did you guys send your "thank you" emails to?

    sent my thank you emails out, and havent heard anything from any of them. interview went great, but who knows how they actually choose people. saw the woman's paper in front of me and it seems like they grade your response on a scale of 5 to 1 .. 5 being the best and 1 being the worst. i guess we'll all find out very soon!

    Good morning!

    I also sent out thank-you emails to my interviewers. I haven't heard anything back, but am not worrying about this because there were over 200 of us. I like to send out emails, too, because who knows what can happen in the snail-mail system!

    All the best! This is getting exciting!

    I didn't send thank-you emails, but handed them a thank-you card instead at my interview on the 31st. I haven't gotten any response at all and starting to wonder if I stood out enough from everyone else. The interviewers made me feel completely at ease as they probably did with everyone else, and one of them sensed my initial joyfulness of having that interview opportunity with such a wonderful organization like Scripps.

    Hoping they pick me, but I have my doubts.

    Good luck to us all!

    Was anyone asked what unit they were interested in or which location? Just wondering how they place candidates.

    Crossing fingers that we hear something early so we don't have to spend our time agonizing and overanalyzing...

    They didn't ask me specifically which hospital or unit I wanted to work in - When she ran down the list of where we would be going for residencies, I did say "They're ALL perfect." which is the truth! Med/Surg, Onc, and Tele are my top three.

    I mentioned that I'd had clinical at Chula Vista, and my family members were cared for at La Jolla, and that I haven't been to Encinitas yet but would love to see the campus.

    I woke up this morning for 8 emails, and it took me about 15 minutes to click on "inbox". They were all from different people I know. Ha.

    I hope you all have a good week! I look forward to hearing from you!!!
