I’m wondering about that too. I heard previous years are about 70-80. I’m curious to see if that number is different from previous because it is being done online this year. 

Can’t believe interviews are a few short weeks away! Anyone know what the panel  interview and structured interview consist of?

I’m assuming it involves the panel interview as a “meet and greet”, “tell me about yourself” and the structured interview involves more stuff related to your specialty? Maybe IDK. I’m curious of the writing analysis and the critical care exam.

I'm tired of talking to myself in the mirror...If anyone wants to chat, message me. Not sure what's in store for us but verbal discussion practice cant hurt !

I got my interview on Wednesday and am so curious what the exam and written analysis is

It was referred to as an abstract writing assignment so it is most likely an essay on a random prompt topic like the GRE.

Not bad, it was very comfortable and felt like maybe 15 min wasn’t enough time though. 

I’m not sure how I felt about it, 15 mins to present yourself isn't a whole lot

Same! They were so nice but felt too short!

I don’t feel like the panel interview mattered much at all. We will likely be scored on the two exams and structured interview might be most important.  

Random question.. did you guys all take the exams right after the interview or take a break in between them?

I took them right after.

 

also did anyone fee the structured interview was almost the same as the panel interview?

I felt like they were different. I think they are still doing the structure interviews next week as well. We should hear from them in two weeks. Good luck everyone!

Totally agree with @Elhn it was very different from each other and I find that both are equally important!! Wish everyone luck! Don’t be too nervous! The interviewers were extremely welcoming and kind. They weren’t rushing you or anything. 

Yeah I walked away feeling good about everything in general. I hope I get in but if not thats OK since I know its very competitive!
