    Good luck. Some programs arent to the point of downloading apps yet. I know my program hasn't yet.

    I suggest using google calendar to keep track of interview. You will always have access to it in case you phone dies or you loose your day planner.

    What is an acknowledgment? The automated e-mail that they received your application?

    I've gotten one of those, one request for supplemental information, and one thingie with my name on it, but otherwise it looked automated.

    Update: 2 additional invites today (one eastern, one midwest, both university) so 3 today and 4 altogether. Is it common for programs send off their invites on fridays, right before the office closes?

    My three IM interviews are from a community hospital, university-affiliated hospital, and university hospital. I'm actually more interested in the community hospital than the university one...go figure.
