It would be great if we could share interview opportunities/experiences/any advise. Good luck to everyone applying!
You're going to be very competative with a Step 1 of 269 and honors in those clerkships. Do a Child Neurology rotation at the beginning of your 4th year and get some good letters of recommendation. If you're at a U.S. school, all programs should be available to you, and likely you'll have the pick of where you want to go! Great job getting to this point and aim high!Hi,
I am a third year, looking for advice. I am interested in applying in Child Neurology, to 5 year combined programs. I need some advice about how competitive I am (which programs are realistic to me), and how I should structure my 4th year (should I do sub-Is? when?)
-step 1: 269
-honors in pediatrics and neurology clerkships
-no research experience
thanks so much!
