Trying to match radiology with board scores that are a stretch. I am an osteopathic student to add to the insult. With 250k of loans hanging over my head I don't want to waste a single year. I was thinking that instead of a transitional year or osteopathic internship which gets me absolutely no where I'd do a prelim year of medicine... my question is (in general terms of most programs) how hard is it to slide from a prelim year of medicine to continue on as a second year and finish up. If I don't get rads the first time I want to skip one app cycle, finish up medicine and apply during my PGY3 year of medicine. That way if I don't get it a second time at least I'll have something to show for my three years of hard work right? hard to do or unrealistic?
