    This question is for everyone but mostly for those who have matched....does doing research or an internship the summer after your M1 year greatly increase your competitiveness for residency programs your 4th year or is it just something gunners do? My heart tells me to just go work as a camp counselor this summer and enjoy the lake and outdoors but seeing that i love orthopedics, i'm afraid that a "wasted" summer will make me less competitive for such a coveted spot. When interviewing applicants do they place a lot of emphasis on how you spent your summers??? Sorry, i'm really not neurotic, just a bit confused with the summer coming so soon! Thanks everyone...
