hey all i am applying to residency programs but have hard time picking the programs. some tell me to apply to all and just select after interviews but i don't want to put my recommending professors through torture by having them write and mail out to programs i'm not interested in. and i have asked people - what do i look for? but have not really gotten anything substantial. so i'm starting this thread to see what you guys say. i already asked myself some questions only to answer them with "how do you know unless you start working there?" i asked people about the programs they are at and they reply that it's different for everyone. so i would really appreciate any input. thanks.
