Ok.. A dormant thread this one is.. Anyways some input from my side..
These are some of the programs some of my seniors got interview from.. Most of them were fresh graduates with no prior Peds experience..

Cook County Peds IL
Cleveland Metrohealth OH
Sinai Childrens Hospital Peds program IL
Texas Tech El Paso TX

Those with some Peds experience in US in the form of Obsie/electives got calls from

Driscoll Childrens TX
Cincinnati Childrens OH
UTMB Galveston TX
Univ of Toledo
SUNY Downstate and Buffalo
Hurley Medical Center
East Tennessee Univ TN
Sinai Hospital Baltimore

A few who had prior Peds training in home country got calls from

Boston Children's (YES HARVARD!!!)
Miami Children's

Keep adding the list guys!!
