I like the idea that the above post had with regard to splitting them up. I honestly did not know what I wanted when I went through but the programs are very diverse and this is how I thought of them when I finally made my list.

Grouped into general categories. These categories are not reflective of quality but just to give people an idea of how each program is characterized so that if they know what they want they can target these places. I would be curious what others thought.

Somewhat balanced
OrthoCarolina (shoulder distal)
Duke (elbow distal)
WashU Ortho
Ohio State
Baylor Houston
MCW

Trauma heavy
Curtis (shoulder distal)
University of Washington (elbow distal)
MGH (Shoulder distal)
NYU
UCLA

True upper extremity
Pitt (shoulder distal)
Indiana (shoulder distal)
Cleveland Clinic

Micro Heavy
Mayo
USC

Truly academic
WashU Plastics
UMichigan (Research heavy)

Maximum Flexibility (generally these were programs with 1 fellow such that they couldn't depend on you and you could do whatever cases you wanted and make your own call schedule)
Yale
Hopkins

Pediatrics Heavy
Beth Isreal Boston

Bread and Butter
UMass
Beth Isreal New York
Kleinhart

Anyone willing to contribute to a Excel sheet for the future for impressions from interviews/experiences etc. ? I compiled whatever I could find online and other sources for myself. But something that would have been helpful going into this process. Especially with virtual interviews.

Might be better to just add your information to this thread. It'll be a pain in future years to keep track of different URLs and you also won't have to worry about others changing your comments afterwards (it happens).
