Realistically, there's a huge chance I won't match this year. I only applied to three programs (2 osteo, 1 allo) and was offered interviews at two of these programs and they're all pretty small programs. If I don't match, I have a few options: 1.Do a traditional internship year- I'd really rather not take this option. I am limited geographically and my chances of finding a PGY-2 spot next year in my area are not good at all. So, it would kind of be a wasted year. 2.Try to get involved in research for the year 3.Volunteer at a local crisis center for the year Would options 2&3 be horrible choices? I think volunteering at a crisis center would be the one that I'd enjoy the most.
