    This happen to anyone?

    Advertisements



    When I got an invite for a program, I was told to call to set up an interview. I called less than 5 minutes after I received the email. I was routed to voice mail that basically said to leave yer name and #. This was the residency coordinator. I did. Never called back. This was last week, I called again, just to be sure, same thing. I know this place, they have that in place to screen calls. What gives?

    hmmmm....
    IMO its been a week, so i'd say wait a li'l longer and give them time...maybe they are bz and will get back to u !(hopefully soon)
    and also email them....
    i had to schedule at a place and sent them 2 emails of acceptance...there was a lull for 1 week , but finally i got the confirmation.

    so hang in there!

    Okay, just gonna state the obvious here, but did you call the specific number given in the invite email? Sometimes the contact details given at the bottom (email signature) differ from the one's specified in the text. Happened to me on one of my invites. Finally realized and called the correct number and got through first time.

    one of my emails for an interview said that it would take them 7-10 business days to get back to you if you call or email. Maybe thats what happened with you.

    Yes

    Same thing is happening to me. I have sent out emails and have called and no one picks up. I am getting worried. I really like this program and am afraid that I will not get an open slot. I keep wondering if my email is working correctly. This is really bothering me. I dont know what else to do.
