I'm an aspiring semi-matriculating to medical school graduating senior. (I'm going into a special master's program at EVMS in the fall). And I just have a question on the difficulty of getting into an EM residency. I realize that this may have been answered already in other places, but I was just hoping that some one could answer it for me so that I don't have to search the forum for a couple of hours to get these answers. Roughly what kind of grades, recommendations, clincical rotation grades/recs /other stuff and Step 1 quality are we looking at to get an EM residency? Assume that I am willing to go to a wide variety of places. Just exactly how competitive are we talking here?
