a scrambled egg
First of all, congrats to the new residents. You worked hard, maybe some of it was luck, but you did it and should be proud.
According to the stats (correct me if I am wrong) 63 students have gone unmatched, 37 spots remain available, leaving 26 students sitting out this year.
I am opening up this forum to advice to those who need it, those in the scramble. If you scrambled in the past, please share some advice. The reasons why a student is unmatched at this point is moot so it won't be discussed here.
So what did you do differently this time around?
Did you do a preceptorship?
Did you have to sit out the year and re-apply?
How aggressive were you in contacting programs? What worked, what didn't?
What was more helpful-your program, or other students/residents etc?
Good luck brothers-
