St. Mary's in CT is good for surgery. You'll work like a dog but its good training. The PD invented TPN, known as one of the 3 great advances in surgery of the century (along with on-pump heart surgery and transplantation). I got a letter from him and so did one of my other colleagues. 204 will probably get you a prelim position but I know at St. Marys the prelims all get categorical PGY1 spots the next year.
