I wanted to know if anyone knew how competitive PMR is this year compared to last year. I have only had a few PMR interviews, and liked only one program. I'm deciding on not ranking the other programs and go for the scramble instead. Does anyone know if this year is much more competitive than last year, and that scramble spots would be far more difficult to come by than before? This would drastically affect my decision on whether or not to rank these programs. I have heard mixed stories such as the number of applicants has doubled this year, and some people saying that the number of applicants is about the same as last year. If it's similar to last year, it's likely that I'd be able to scramble into a pretty good program. I'd appreciate any advice.
