Here's mine, in order of interview (I interviewed at WAY too many):

Denver
Vanderbilt
Bellevue
Hennepin
Christiana
Michigan
Maine
MGH/BW
BIDMC
Harbor-UCLA
UC Davis
Highland
Indiana
Pittsburgh
OHSU
Cincinnati
U of Chicago
UCSD
Stanford

If I had to do it over again, I would cut Christiana, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Bellevue, Harbor-UCLA, Hennepin, and possibly Cincinnati purely based on location. Those cities were either too small, too big, or too isolated for me.

I don't know, I think you should have added one more to make it a cool 20. Seriously, though, impressive stamina to make it through all of those!

Here's my much shorter list (due to my own inherent laziness) in the order I interviewed:

UAB (Home program)
UVa
Emory
Orlando
Carolinas
UNC-Chapel Hill
Wake Forest
Vandy
2 transitionals and a prelim med that no one on here probably cares about

Rotations at: UAB and Vandy

Feel free to PM me about any of these interviews or rotations.

Andy: Awesome website! I remember looking at it last year, too. Really liked the travel map.

Let it go. Just let it go. Everyone on this board passed their USMLE and will match with equal probability. Even those with top 99% scores will have the same difficulty and odds of scramble as those with 5% scores. Myopic viewpoints like a three digit number will determine your fate are exactly why I chose this field in which I practice, so narrow-minded, self conscious, academic freaks who have nothing but some digits to bring to the table instead of broad-based, real-world, well-rounded people skills won't be left in the mix. A better question for EM would be for people to list their extracurricular involvement, past EM experience, and activities outside of medicine as a whole. That brings much more depth to a pasing score on the USMLE than the jack-hole who was AOA, top of the charts USMLE, and can't talk his way out of a paper bag. But then again - I guess you knew that didn't ya? The real question you should be asking people instead of their scores is if their score actually changed their mind in applying to the field they are most comfortable in. I doubt it stopped anyone from going where they knew they belonged. Do you expect to gain any extra knowledge from knowing people's USMLE scores? Will it really influence your decision to apply this field if your score is lower? If it will then please don't apply because an EM physician without confidence in themself who only places stock in the three digit score that is under their name on an application is someone who is useless in a field where confidence makes critical decisions. I passed. Every program director you interviewed with passed. Every resident walking the halls on your tours passed. Give it up - it doesn't matter.

Rant over.

I agree with above post by NinerNiner999. From previous posts (most of it) by utlonghorn50, I can sense he is quite obsessed with knowing other people's board scores. EM definitely looks more on the applicant as a whole as mentioned by many EM posts.

For utlonghorn50, work your butt off and do well on USMLE so you can put this board score issue to rest. :D
