    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?

    Make the best grades and scores you can make, and more importantly learn as much as you can.

    try not to be a lazy med student, you can start by searching the forum.

    Just playing, I couldn't resist, I lack that frontal inhibition.

    I miss the FMcF hangman game . . . I rarely see it used these days . . . people just jump right to the answer.

    Do you think FMcP has beard? I have always pictured him with a beard and glasses, not like a zz-top beard more like a homeless man beard.

    See, I always picture him as more of a Dr. 90210 kind of guy. Pompous and much too self-confident.

    There's a guy at my hospital, I think he must be a scrub tech or maybe he works in Equipment, who has a weightlifter's build, tattoos on both biceps, and -- I sh#t you not -- sleeveless scrub tops. They appear to be custom-tailored, with finished edges where the sleeves would otherwise start.

    I so badly want to walk up to him, raise a hand in the air, and say "like-your-style five!"

    ...but he may not get it, and/or may kick my #ss.
