    Some questions about transitional year.

    I heard they were somewhat competitive. How many do people apply to?

    I plan to go into radiology. Do people use the same personal statement when applying to transitional year or do they write one specifically for transitional year programs?

    i'm a transitional year resident.

    i used the same ophthalmology PS, but added a paragraph at the end about why a TY would help me as a doctor/ophthalmologist.

    i applied to all the TY's in california, and yes they are pretty competitive. I'd say about as competitive as getting a radiology residency.
