I scored 704 COMLEX, 8/141 in my class, previous paramedic experience, one publication in nature, recently presented poster at the AOCOO this month on a new surgically implantable microstent for glaucoma, good LOR from ophthalmologist. What are the chances of getting interviwed (and even matching) in ophthalmology with no audition rotation? I noticed a previous post that stated a school would interview you without an audition. I know auditions are very important in the osteopathic community, but is this possible? Thank you all for your help.
you'd probably get in without an audition, but you should get at least a couple of auditions in IMO. Your stats are pretty baller so congrats on that, but there are very limited Ophtho spots, unlike say Ortho or even ENT. Overall, I'd expect someone to give you a shot because of your application, but I could be wrong wilth only 11 or 12 spot that are in the match usually.
