For students applying to DR (advanced, starting PGY-2), what are the pros and cons of completing a PGY-1 in general surgery vs internal medicine vs transitional year? And how would students prepare for each (eg LORs, 4th year rotations, etc)? And what is the relative proportion of programs to apply to for each of these scenarios? For example, in a 50:10:10:10 ratio, that would mean for every 50 DR programs, one should apply to 10 GS-P, 10 IM-P, and 10 TY programs. Curious to hear everyone's thoughts and grazie!
