12 students at GW matched optho this year. Is that normal?

    The class size was roughly 160, and 12/12 matched optho. That sounds high to me, but I don't know. Does that sound excessive to anyone else?

    12/12 is impressive.

    I met a few GW kids on the trail, & they all told me that 12 is an atypically high # 4 them, but 12/12 is well done 4 GW.. I also heard a rumor that harvard had like 20 kids apply 4 ophtho, not sure if this is accurate or how many matched..

    I heard on the interview trail from a Harvard grad that there were also a huge number applying to ophtho. He said that they all matched. The interesting thing is that he said that not one of them matched at MEEI--by their choice. Apparently, this is the first time MEEI didn't match one of their own. I thought that it was an intersting tidbit from the interview trail and couldn't resist to share it.

    They all decided not to attend, or was it because their program didn't want them?

    I was told by the Harvard grad that by their choice this years Harvard grads did not match at MEEI despite being ranked to do so. Again--interview trail gossip--take it for what it's worth.
