Comments from past attendees


"Honestly this was so much easier than attending a residency fair in person, where there is a hubbub of attendees. I felt there was more order, as the hosts could speak with each person as they came into the chat. Was able to learn so much about the programs."

"Loved being able to speak directly with residents and program directors. I learned so much about the whole process (third year student) and was able to ask very frank questions."

"This went very smoothly. I was very happy with it. This platform was hands down better and easier and less stressful than others I have used."
