    Advertisements



    Hey guys..
    I need help. I have applied to IM programas as back up to ER. Haven't heard from any ER programs...and few rejections from IM.....I'm getting extremely worried. My question is I didnt' apply to any IM program in NY or NJ...Any suggestions if I should go ahead and apply to some in those areas or wait till MSPE is released???

    wondering if there is any truthe that you should get more interviews in the geographic area where you live? maybe the programs figure the cost of moving to another part of the contry will discouage the applicant so why waste the interview on some one when you can get enough people living locally.
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
    "60 years young" another 60 to go if my doctor sons keep me alive with free prescriptions!!

    You are lucky that you have gotten letters of rejection, not even that i have gotten yet, i applied to EM and Path. I think you should go ahead and apply, don't wait till nov 1. what were your scores like? mine are 1-78, 2-99, CS- pass.

    wow ....I had never heard of that.....anyone else know how true is this???
    This makes it kinda confusing for me though.....I'm in Florida and have already applied to most of the areas around me. But I've heard most IMGs get residencies in NY and NJ.....hmmm...dont' knwo what to do.

    thats because almost 1/3 of residencies are in NY with the rest spread out. if you haven't gotten anything yet its time to start sending more apps since programs interview november-january you don't wanna miss out.
