Here's my situation... There is a group of orthopods in the city that I am from that I have been around & worked with a lot. Every time my father goes to the clinic to get his knee injected w/ Cortisone, the docs always ask about me & tell him that they have a job waiting for me. Here's the problem though...I am worried about gunning for ortho due to the possibility of not matching in such a competitive field. My MSI grades put me (somehow) in the bottom half of the class. I expect to do well on boards & will put in the time needed. But at this point, are my MSI grades going to come back to bite me? I am an extremely hard worker & expect to do very well in the clinics b/c I have always seemed to excel under stress & long hours. Am I getting too far ahead of myself? Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts? Thanks.
