Competitive for Pediatrics?
I'd like to know some info about what it take to be competitive for a pediatric residency. I researched previous threads but I'm not sure how relevant they are in light of part 1 boards going pass/fail.
My questions are what gpa is considered competitive? What class rank is considered competitive? What extracurriculars should be done (research, mission trips, leadership postions, externships)?
Also, do you guys recommend the Guide to Postdoctoral Programs (volume 2) or should I save my money?
