Talk about a competitive year to match! In RadOnc, there were only 3 unfilled spots (Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville) as the other 4 spots (2 at UNC, 1 from UTMB, 1 from Tufts) were not even available through the match as evidenced by the fact that they did not accept applications this year. Praise be to God that I matched! :)

Any other ridiculously competitive matches? Derm? Plastics?

Gen Surg had 2 available spots out of over 1000 slots... thats better stats than pretty much any of the other specialties out there... still not more competitive than Rad Onc, Plastics (which I guess since it had 0 slots out of 200+ spots it could be considered the toughest) yeah... tough match this year
