Weather and interview score


Recommended Posts

I clicked the link but it didn't bring me to the right place, from what I could tell anyways...

 

Lol when I saw the thread title I kind of laughed because I just pictured people hearing about it and freaking out :P My interview day was overcast and crappy, but in my mind, if you perform well, express yourself well, and just be yourself, the interviewers probably won't be thinking about the weather ;)

It's not really random. It's researching undergraduate medical education and the admissions process. Tons of research in that field. I'm sure most of you have already seen this study...

I think this is the article for those who want to look at it.

Indeed I did.

 

I should add that the effect may not be due only to interviewer mood. It may actually be due to the fact that people interviewing on days with precipitation are in a worse mood. Or, more likely, both.
