Entering medical school in september, and I was wondering; what are the chances of not getting any residency? Could you be left out in the cold after four years of med school?

I am sure this questions been asked a hundred times, but be patient with me if it has.

Thanks

if you went to med school in the US, very very unlikely (although I know 1 person who had this happen ... very extenuating circumstances though).

It is very possible that you might not match into the specialty of your CHOICE, however, it is very improbable that you not get into any residency. Especially if you are a US grad
