I live on the west coast, but will be applying to almost exclusively schools
on the east side of the country. I am prepared to travel for interviews, and to move my family wherever I get into school, but was wondering how common it is for schools to grant Skype interviews. Is it considered poor form to ask if this is an option? Considering that most schools don't extend interviews with much more than a month's notice, it could potentially be challenging for me to find work coverage and make travel arrangements in time. I'm prepared to do so and have already talked to some of the per diem staff in my ICU in case I need coverage, but it would be nice to know how realistic of an option a Skype interview would be.
