I am currently applying for an advanced speciality, and my fiancee is applying to a categorical speciality. I was trying to set up prelim interviews in every city where I had advanced offers (so we could also be together for intern year) but quickly learned that this is impossible to do (date conflicts, etc.). My back up plan was only to interview for PGY-1 positions in 1 or 2 of our top choice cities and if we don't match there (which is likely) to scramble for an intern year spot where I matched into my advanced spot. However, I just realized that on the Monday of match week we only find out IF we match, NOT WHERE! So, how does one scramble into a certain geographic location? Is there a way to find out what city/region you have matched into so you can concentrate your efforts there? If I wait until after match day (to find out the location) to begin scrambling for my PGY-1 spot, will everything halfway-decent be taken? For my advanced speciality I can do a PGY-1 year in any speciality - med,surg,transitional year, even a PGY-1 year in peds or fp. Anyone have any advice on other ways to deal with this? Thanks for your help.
