Interesting Observation About Dermatology Rank List from UC Davis

The January 2018 issue of Dermatology Online Journal has published a letter about the dermatology applicants they interviewed from 2011 through 2013 (2 interview cycles). Data collected indicated that interview performance was the most correlated factor for rank list than other application factors, such as research, letters of recommendation, and test scores. This article is available at: https://escholarship.org/uc/item/5k86w5qs  Although this report is not very surprising, it does confirm how important the interview is to applicants and to programs.
