I'm a US senior applying to otolaryngology (ENT). I'm also applying to general surgery as a backup. Does anyone have any experience applying to both the early and regular match? Any advice would be appreciated--specifically, were you able to arrange your backup-specialty interviews for after the early match, and therefore you could just cancel them if you matched in the early match? What if you don't apply to a backup specialty and you have to scramble for a spot? Thanks in advance!
