    Haven't submitted the secondary yet since my background is also heavily orthopedic surgery. For what its worth, Winthrop does have a general surgery residency so I dont know how certain we can be that it'll be ortho just cause its at winthrop.

    But i mean if you've heard otherwise about whether or not they'll let us do ortho, that changes everything for me haha.

    To your other point, hip/knee is awesome man haha

    I wonder if there's a screen for interview invites, and if they're sending them out in waves

    Emergency medicine is not a core clerkship at most MD schools in the third year. A good number of schools do have a required EM rotation in either third or fourth year, but still a minority of medical schools have it as a required rotation during third year/clerkship year. And some medical schools have no required EM experience - only optional during third or fourth year.

    However, it is not at all surprising that the new Winthrop NYU program will have a required EM rotation. NYU has a premier EM residency program that has trained many of the leaders of EM over the years, in residency and fellowships. However, though the main NYU 3 year program has spots for students going into EM, it is not clear that the new NYU-Winthrop program will consider EM a primary care specialty. They did not separately list EM, though they did include general surgery. Maybe if not this year, maybe in future classes. EM certainly feels more like primary care than general surgery does!

    Idk if EM or orthopedic surgery count for this program but you should probably shoot them an email and ask about it before dropping $150 on the application

    Did anyone get a confirmation email after submitting their secondary. The email I received after submitting my secondary stated “ Once your application is complete, we will send you a confirmation email. “ I haven’t received any email since.

    For you and others who received an interview- what specialty did you select?

    I can't remember where I saw this, but I think these essays are reviewed by the specialty leaders to select separate interview candidates?

    from what people have posted I think they’re mostly going after high stats applicants first... hopefully they stay true to their “holistic review” and consider applicants with lower scores

    Yeah, because April 1, 2, 3 are the only being offered (or so it appears?) I'm hoping that they save later dates for us lower stat holistic applicants!

    Would you have any chance here if your application doesn't have any focus on primary care? lol

    Let’s be real...the vast majority of those accepted to this “primary care” centric program will be very high stat applicants, with most of their clinical experience and demonstrated interest being geared more towards various sub-specialties than family medicine. Maybe a few will have spent a few days shadowing a primary care doc.

    So...the school will email rejected applicants late in the cycle, as if they’re being recruited, giving false hope to those who haven’t had much luck in order to squeeze a few more dollars out of them. Competitive applicants will lie in their essays about wanting to practice internal medicine in order to get free tuition at a top school. The circle of life continues. Lol.

    Potentially if you can feign enough interest in primary care in your secondary essays but I personally think it's unfair to take a spot from applicants who are actually interested in primary care

    my application is centered around an internal medicine sub specialty so technically i'm still telling the truth about wanting to do internal medicine.

    Hey there friend, I'm in the same boat as you for surgery. They're probably going to interview and accept a really low number of surgery students since it's not really primary care.

    Just some friendly words of advice. I feel like disconnecting from the internet and focusing on distracting yourself might be in your best interest. Constantly refreshing sdn, email and portals put me in a toxic place until I realized what it was doing to me. I'm hoping to go out and get lost in photography all weekend cuz I have an engagement party, model and a much-needed hike all scheduled. TGIF.

    Currently photoshopping myself onto sports teams and had Elon Musk pose as me to take my MCAT last month. LOR is from Atul Gawande. That should be enough, but if not, I guess I can donate a building

    Chose pediatrics. Submitted my essays last night at like 10:30 pm, got an II this morning! ORM LM ~75, quite low GPA but very high MCAT, also from the nearby area and coincidentally one of the LORs in my committee letter packet is from a doctor whose private practice works with Winthrop.

    Available dates were April 4th and 5th for me! Very pleasantly surprised at the turnaround for this one.

    I just feel stupid for writing a 2500 character essay instead of a long paper. I bet they went through my app and were like yea she doesn’t seem interested even though I’ve always wanted to do internal medicine. Oh wellllll it is what it is

    I don't think they really take the length of the essays into consideration, mine were around 2500-3000 characters long (received II)
