thank you! Im gonna shoot for the stars but I understand how competitive it is out there. I can only try my best but my dream would be to match mid tier academic IM since I know thats more realistic with my background. Thanks again for the input! Will continute to hustle for pubs and academic letters over the next year.
Going to say a few things bc I’m at a mid tier program and know a few colleagues that match to break the ceiling IM stories known to the sdn community in the past couple of years:
If you’re serious about IM, get all four letters for ERAS from academic general IM or IM subspecialty faculties. Unless you have a few first author pubs, you’re not going to impress a lot of people considering your competition CV. Your match will depend on the people coming to bat for you via your LORs.
Get some research to check that research checkbox so that you don’t get screen out. If Georgetown is your dream program, I would do an audition there plus 2-3 more months there with other IM subspecialty or research. No need to audition at any other program bc IM match is heavily based on your Step 1, CV, and maybe interview performance.
Best of luck.
