I realize this is probably impossible to do, but I'd like to get ideas about the relative competitiveness of IM residencies. I've been hearing that one should apply to a spectrum of programs and not just all in the same tier, so it would be nice to know which are the ones less likely to rank you. Anyways, here's a crack at it, trying to take into account location and everything...whadya think?

Ultra competitive:
Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, MGH, Cleveland Clinic, UWashSeattle, UCSF, Stanford

Real competitive:
Duke, UCLA, Brigham&Women's, WashU, Columbia, Cornell, UChicago, UMich, UPenn

Getting better, but not by much:
UNC, Northwestern, Mount Sinai, Yale, Southwestern, BU, Emory, Vanderbilt, Baylor, Pitt, NYU, NewEnglandMed, CaseWestern, BethIsraelHospital, UAB, UColorado.

I'd just like to say I have no basis for any of this, these are just my impressions. I also have no idea what other programs fit this profile....any suggestions?

I agree, that's what's makes this all kind of confusing. It's seems there are some places that are more competitive because location or whatever.
