首先，从我自己的经历，east coast的program要female friendly 得多。我最近去了
两个mid-west的programs, 一次我是唯一的female（out of 10), 另一次4 females
out of 15 applicants, but I am the only FMGs among females.
先说说toledo,program 推荐的hotel有几个, hilton就在校内，very convenient, staff super friendly, but a bit more expensive, recommend.缺点是不让你check in early. 我住在quality inn, can check in as early as 7am. both have shuttles to and from the airport. 但quality inn的shuttle非常难等，我end up getting a cab.
这儿提供pre-interview dinner, 我们那次本来说只有两个residents，后来来了五个。All males, 2 from mid-east, 2 from Park/Ind, 1 CMG. residents都super friendly, 我碰巧坐在chief resident对面. 赞一下chief resident,我所有去过的program,chief residents 多很出众，往往话不多，但条理非常清楚。而且多帅哥美女。 program 本身有多数fellowship,GI and rheumatology is opening in next one or two years. 另外提醒一下，我去的dinner, 大多数residents似乎不乐衷谈life out of work，尤其是married people. 还有就是pay attention to 餐桌礼仪，the guy sitting next to me kept on waving his knife while talking, almost hit my face.
第二天的interview, start with a PPt talk by APD. program本身是一个typical university based program. 有意思的是，他们这几年做了很多改进。新引进的monthly test system，据说很有效。我据此问了唯一的问题，不幸把人问懵了，很有可能就此出局了：
正式的面试是panel, super short. they interviewed 15 people within 4 hours, including their discussion for ranking and reviewing the package before interview. 正式的问题时间可能在10分钟左右。我面的时候有chairman, PD, APD, chief resident and another resident (the only female I saw in their residents group this time). 问题都是general questions, tell me about yourself, qs from your cv. I heard from other people they asked "strength and weakness", 到我这儿，strength 省了，光剩下weakness了。然后就是any question?
另外，这儿今年不给prematch，all for match. 他们绝对favor本校学生，但据说所有的residents都是IMGs.
