hi. I am usually a lurker, but decided to ask a question and am hoping for some advice to help me come out of my sdn shell.... anyway, i went on an interview for internal medicine at a very prestigious place that i would have never gotten the interview had i not done an outside elective there. they REALLY work their residents and have broken the 80 hour work week on a few occasions. BUT, they are a top 15 program and have a unbelieveable track record of fellowship placement in GI, which is something i want to do. so, here is the question: would you still rank this place highly even though you know you will not be happy there for the next 3 years KNOWING that it will SUBSTANTIALLY increase your chances of getting a GI fellowship? i have been going back and forth on this for a long time now and is getting me even more nervous as ROL time is kind of coming up faster than i had realized. and the reason why i ask this is because i keep on hearing that one should not rank a porgram that they will not be happy at, BUT what if that program can pretty much set you up for what you really wanted to do all along. advice is GREATLY appreciated!!!
