    I don't really care what you do, but why not just put an asterisk by your name in the real IV thread?

    Go to some of the big IMG school websites like Ross, SGU, AUC, AUA and look at their match lists for EM.

    Rejections from about 30% of the programs I applied to and no invites :thumbup:.

    On the bright side my pick up game is strong now that I no longer fear rejection.

    hope all is well on the interview trail. I only got 5 interviews last year and still matched at my number one program. keep your heads held high. EM is getting very competitive.

    Glad to hear you matched last year! How many programs did you apply to and what were your stats like?

    250/259 I had 3 SLOEs from 2 programs. I did two EM rotations. 3rd in my class. Extra-circulars were weak/standard volunteering stuff. no publications. I applied to pretty much every program out there. Did not get a whole lot of interviews. Ended up with 5 and 2 wait listed. Did not apply a back up. Matched my number one which was a program I had my eye on and had taken cribs in the past.
