Hello Everyone,

Has anyone had any recent experience with an away elective at MEEI? If so, please do share.

Thanks,

HS

I had a friend whose very personable and competitive that matched to a top 10-20 who didn't even get invited for an interview there. He even published while there. I think he enjoyed his time there, but he seemed to think that maybe he didn't work with an "influential" enough person AKA on the adcom.

Maybe someone else can offer more insight.

wondering about this too. Seems like MEEI only matches people from Ivy League med schools. Anyone know if an away makes a difference for those of us NOT at ivy leagues?

A friend of mine matched there this year and that's not true. This year's class includes students from Harvard, Yale, Columbia, U Cincinnati, UConn, and Northwestern.

That's really awesome to hear. The profiles of the current residents are pretty discouraging to look at
