I'm in the process of researching where I would like to apply for Ophtho this coming fall, but the more research I do, the more I realize how hard it is to come by objective ratings of all the different programs out there. I've done some searching here on SDN, and I've used google, scutwork, etc. I mean aside from looking at a program's own web site (and you can't really get the info you really want toknow from there), what do people do? And it's risky to go on a few opinions, even if they're from SDN or scut monkey, because you honestly don't know the source... I plan on just asking the residents here at my school what they know, but they can't know about all the programs... We've all seen the list of the top 10 programs...but what about the rest of the top 50 or so? It's very frustrating for someone like me who is really not bound to any geographical region in terms of where I "need to be." Can anyone help me out?
