I'm an MSIII looking to apply for ortho army programs - and yes, I know ortho is competitive. I'm looking for any advice on which ortho programs are the most competitive. I have a slightly above average USMLE step 1 score and grades. Looking to do 2 rotations and I'm not sure if I should play it safe ... or rotate, rank to match, and interview knowing that I have a 50/50 chance to get my match. Is it better to play it safe and rank the lower programs to ensure that I match ortho? Or is worth risking where I want to match knowing that I may do a GMO or transitional year. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
