Hello, Well, let me get right to it... I want to go into Plastics. I am a 3rd year medical student at Ross University. I scored a 245/99 on step 1 and have a 4.0 GPA. Undergrad was about 9 years ago for me and was teribble (2.5gpa)... just flat out didn't take it seriously (i guess graduating high school at age 15 was not a great idea...lol) Readers digest version... I grew up, got serious and am now #1 or 2 in my class (albiet caribbean). My undergrad record leads me to believe that transferring to a US school is out of the question. I don't mind taking a year off to research after my fourth year. I do NOT "know" anyone in the field. 1. What else can I or should I do to help me get into plastics? 2. How difficult is it to get a fellowship after a 5yr gen surg? ANY tips are greatly appreciated!!! Thank you in advance!
