Just wanted to hear some opinions from those who know more than I do since I recently became interested in plastics. I'm an M3 at a southeastern medical school. Short stack on me is that I'm 3.9 GPA currently, USMLE step 1 of 239/97. Found out yesterday that I have been elected Junior AOA at my school. Research has included one project that has carried through since summer after M1 year to now. I am still working on it, and it is not plastics related (i.e. Pediatric Gastroenterology). Our team is expecting 2-3 abstracts and me presenting at a national meeting early this summer approx. May-June (but everyone in research KNOWS how deadlines can get extended). First of all do I have a good shot at getting interviews for an integrated program? I am still researching the pros/cons of integrated vs. traditional. If there are any main posts that I may have missed please feel free to direct my ignorance to them! Next my school does not have an integrated or a "top" rated plastics program. In addition to the service here would you recommend a plastics rotation at another program as well? I have read the other posts and realize that matching is as much a game as anything else, but does this foundation give me a shot at all of getting interviews? Thanks for your help and all the best!
