Anyone think there is a correlation between having turned down a medical school and not hearing anything from their residency program?

:confused:

Not really, but I really enjoyed snubbing the program of a medical school that snubbed me :)

Usually the residency committees and medical school admission committees are separate entities, with the former being department specific.

Its *very* unlikely that the two twains ever meet unless your "turn-down" was the stuff of lore.

Highly unlikely correlation; unless you knew someone from the admissions committee personally, who also happened to be in the departent to which you are applying. Otherwise, huge stretch.

Hi there,
The clinical departments are so far removed from the pre-clinical and admissions stuff that I doubt they would know if you turned down admission to the medical school.

On the other hand, if you were a memorable medical school interview and you were interviewed by the program director who felt compelled to follow your career (are you getting paranoid?), there could be some correlation.

It's near the holidays and things are slowing down. There is still plenty of interview time left.
