    what are my chances in anesthesia?

    (Please bear in mind that I finished anesthesia residency in 2004 and have been cashing in for 11 years now.)

    Yeah, good thing I came through when I did. Its crazy how competitive its gotten. I was considered a rock star applicant in my day, would be lucky to get a spot in todays climate.

    True, would have bagged a 223 with one of those.

    80 programs? Perhaps you could carve out some that you feel truly are out of your reach---unless you really want to leave no doubt in your mind that maybe you could have gotten in (I feel like a 219 Step 1 will keep you out of WashU, Duke, etc as an IMG)

    sorry for taking this thread over but I have one more question,

    many programs have min step 1 requirement of 220, and I have 219:depressed:

    is there anything that I can possible do to effect that automatic screening out?

    and does not participating in ERAS mean that program is less competitive? bad?
