This one hurts quite a bit...I think I am a sufficiently competitive applicant and was actually attracted to the prospects of washington DC with this program since I had it high on my list of places I would like to is unfortunate that it doesn't seem like they took my application seriously given nothing Geographic in my application.It seems however that the original post is by someone from Texas...did you do an away there or is there a way they could've gathered your interest in DC?

No away there, haven't spent

No away there, haven't spent any significant time in DC.

its 6:00 pm ...

Haha - did everyone press 'send' exactly when the clock hit 6:00 pm? I wouldn't be surprised if the coordinator's inbox crashes lol.What a ridiculous process .. smh

If I ever get into residency and make my way up the ranks to program director that's what I'd do ;-)

I had a feeling they were going to cut the people who emailed close to 6pm some slack and that's why I sent an email at 5:59 AND at 6:00.  She replied to my 5:59 email with my first choice.  Felt like I was using ebay to get the interview.
