I am interested in going in neurosurgery. I was wondering if anyone can give me input on my chances of getting into one of the more competitive programs in NS. I go to a med school (Wayne State Univ. in Detroit) that is not ranked in U.S. News's list. When I look at the resident profiles of the more competitive NS programs it seems they all come from top ranked schools like Harvard and Johns Hopkins. Therefore I wanted to assess where I stand in getting into one of those programs. I am a 3rd year med student. I scored a 254/99 on Step 1, honored year I & II, honored my clerkships so far except for one, and have done research and published in neuroimaging. Any input would be appreciated.
