    I applied and havent heard anything other than the deadline was on a sunday so the PD said they accepted applications through the week following the deadline. From previous post about RI, it seems they send out interview invites pretty quickly. Maybe this week will be a good week.

    Hi Marco. I know it is a small program. Only 8 students per class. I was told that last year they interviewed around 50. The interview is informal and they mostly want to get to know your personality and see how you would fit in. No clinical questions. Did your invite arrive via mail or email?

    Hi Ijlindsey,

    I had an interview at Memorial Hospital of RI this past thursday. It went well. It was a very laid back interview. the director mostly went over the program and what to expect as student. then they got to know you a bit and you learned the background. Also, you get hooked up with one of the senior students and you visit the OR. I was interested. it probably could be the most inexpensive school for this program. Also regarding interviews, he mentioned that with the whole hurricaine stuff that happen in the northeast, they're quite behind schedule. They say they'll be interviewing till end of december. So i hope you get to here from them soon.
