    check this link out, on the right side of the page for a comparison of ERAS applications over the years.

    miklos posted it in another forum, thought it would be intersting to many on SDN as well. looks like apps are up in some fields. ob/gyn is up 10%, which seemed to be the consensus in the interview trail.

    in general, about 2500 more applicants. yikes!

    Thanks neil - for certain specialties that go unfilled, how come there is a disportionate amount of applicants applying that don't fill those positions? LIke for psych - 3180 applicants with 1,206 spots - how can they not fill then?

    Yes that's very confusing. EM,which has more slots and fills at a higher rate, had fewer applicants listed! I think it has to do with the IMGs. They were 2/3 of the Psych applicants, almost 1/2 of the IM applicants and about 1/3 of the EM applicants.

    Are the IMGs filling outside the match, after the match and applying to more than one specialty?

    +pad+ script: Nice new avatar, but I still vote for another cute baby picture. :)
