Hi, I am currently applying to Anesthesiology and have received a handful of interviews. Some of the interviews have been better than I expected. From your experiences/people that you know, do I really have a shot at these schools or are they dreams? I don't want to build up my hopes unnecessarily. I received dead average on the USMLE 1 and have had two publications (second author) in college (not in anesthesia). I have done some research on anesthesia and am working on the manuscript now. Anyways, I managed to receive interviews at my state schools (NY) including columbia, cornell, nyu. However, it seems as if they interview a lot of people. Any opinions on if they would even consider me to be a probable candidate?
