    About the above, what would that mean? I don't understand Facebook very well. It's odd that there's not a bunch of people posting here about this because there's a long thread with lots of match results every year.
    MUA finished.
    Psychiatry residency finished.

    I have been a long time user of valuemd and feel that it is time to give back to all of the MUA students reading this board. I recently entered the match this year and matched in my first choice program. MUA will give you a chance to succeed but they will not hold your hand. You have to be pro-active and make sure that you take matters into your own hand to make sure you graduate and enter the match in a timely manner. Remember to apply early and have all scores (Step 2 CS/CK) in by that time if possible. In regards to the match, my scores were "okay" at best. But, I still received more than 20+ interview offers with no problems. Once granted an interview, the program already believes that you are a good enough candidate for their program. It is now time for them to see if you will make a good fit in their program. During interviews, be yourself and see where it goes. Remember, programs are trying to see if you fit into their program, but you should also see if you will feel comfortable being a part of their program. Interviews are stressful times but just think about it as a date and see where you would be happy spending the next few years of your life. Getting a residency is important, but being happy with your residency is the most critical thing to succeed as a resident. Good luck to everyone and feel free to message me with any questions or concerns.

    A little background info on myself:
    Started MUA - September 2009
    Graduated MUA - March 2013
    Went through basic sciences without any gaps and passed comp on my first try. Took step 1 within 2 months of finishing basic sciences and went on to clinicals the following month. I completed all my clinical rotations at St. Anthony in OKC because I knew that it was the one site that MUA had where you could do all rotations back to back. I am not smart by any means but MUA gave me an opportunity and I took it. To summarize, I was fortunate enough to finish medical school in 3.5 years and match in my #1 rank. If I can do it, you all can as well. I hope this gives hopes to those who have doubts if they can make it or not.
