- As soon as possible after the interview, write down your impressions and update your checklist.
- When you get home, send a thank you note to recognize their hospitality and to reaffirm your interest in the program.
- In reviewing your notes, you may discover several vital questions that you did not have the opportunity to ask during the interview. It is perfectly acceptable to call back for more information, particularly if one of your interviewers, frequently a resident, has invited you to contact him or her for more information.
Some programs will offer you the opportunity for a "second look." Feel free to take advantage of the invitations if you feel it would help you. In some cases, programs will interpret your interest in a "second look" as an indication of your enthusiasm for the program. In other cases, a program may discourage "second looks" and interpret it as an insult if you request one. Try to get some insight into this issue when you talk to the residents in the program.
