    I applied to somewhere around 13 and had about a 50% interview rate. I would say my competitiveness was "average to above-average" overall.

    Best of luck with the application process.

    Depends on how competitive the fellowships are you are applying to, how competitive of an applicant you are, and what you are looking for in a fellowship. Non-anesthesia trained applicants will probably have to apply to a few more programs.

    thanks for the replies.
    I think for me at least it hard to judge the competitiveness of the programs, and of myself, since I don't specifically know the ITE score range of those who are offered positions. It interesting that only a few programs have required my specific ITE scores. I think I will stop applying at around 16.
