So if it took me 2 cycles to get into med school, does that mean it will take me 4 tries to get the residency of my choice?

That's because med schools are stupid. I'm sure residency programs will easily recognize your brilliance. :love:

ummm. Residency is based off of your medical school performance.

Do good in residency and you will hopefully match into something you enjoy

no, it just means it will take your mom 4 times to get in a residency program.

hahah! that one was good. But you're wrong. it would actually take your mom 2 times to get in because she's an earlier, wiser generation than you. (1/2)*(2^2)=2. The math works out.
