Thanks for the advice. With my stats do you think I should focus on rotating at community programs?You'll match. Just do 3 aways and be a realistic. Only a max of 1 of your aways should be at a reach, since having ample research may help offset the lower than avg step score and no honors. Otherwise, if your priority is to match, just do research in to solid programs that you think you'd like to be at because you'd be a good fit there and/or they're close to family/friends or whatever your preference is.
Multiple residents have told me that the strategy of doing aways in different geographic areas doesn't really work, and instead I should rotate where I really want to go even if all of those programs are in one location. What are your thoughts on this?
