Hey, I am a rising MS4 at a small-ish state MD school in the Southeast applying to OBGYN. I was wondering if anyone has any tips/experience with applying to programs in different regions of the country with minimal ties to the region. My only geographical tie to the NW is that I went to college in Portland, OR and did a lot of volunteer/clinical research work at OHSU at the time. I would love to go back to the Pacific Northwest but I recognize that the programs there are competitive, so I wanted to know how much geographical ties would matter. For reference, I have average/mod competitive stats as an applicant and a strong research background. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
