I don't know all the details regarding residency applications but given their matching this year was 98.2% (I don't think data on whether they were first choice or not are available), I would imagine and hope that Wayne training isn't an issue later on. However, I mean, at the end of the day, medical school is a such a privilege and students are incredibly desperate to get in that they could basically do whatever they want. These are the circumstances that make it "acceptable" for a school to send out an acceptance the Friday before school starts, even to students who are OOS and haven't put down an apartment deposit because they can't afford to.I would say that it hasn’t varied much beyond highly incompetent. Do people make noise about this? I would be embarrassed if I was the Dean and people spoke about my work this way. Do they just not care that they look like bafoons? I don’t want my training to be questioned when I’m applying for residencies, yet I’m already questioning it myself. Am I risking a huge opportunity cost here by choosing Wayne? They are really sowing the seeds of doubt and regret early on, which is incredibly concerning.
It's supremely messed up and unprofessional on so many levels but I think this is why it is that way. It sucks.
