bottom line is this: pedo still isn't that competetive, despite what people say. I think you just need 85+ on part I, be in the top half of your class, and be passionate about pedo. Oh, and this assumes you aren't a jerk. Good luck!:luck:

It's true, everybody got interviews and everybody matched. No wait, that's OMS.

Pedo is competitive but not as competitive as ortho or oms. Unlike these two specialties, with pedo you can get into a residency with average scores if you show a lot of passion. However this is not the norm, its the exception. Fact is if you don't have decent numbers then you won't get the interviews to show the programs your passion.
