i'm in a bad situation. since i started med school, i've been pretty set on EM. so my schedule this year is all set up for EM. i now think, however, that i want to do something else (anesthesia). my problem is that i won't be able to do my sub-i until october. so, i was wondering what i should do about my ERAS. i've heard that turning in your ERAS on sept 1 is the best way to ensure that you get the most interviews. if this is the case, should i just write a personal statement about why i want to do anesthesia? or would programs not take the personal statement seriously because i haven't done the rotation yet? should i just wait until after i do my anesethesia rotation (late oct) and turn in my ERAS then? would that be too late? any help would be greatly appreciated.
