    I'm thinking about attending Vandy next year and I have a question about residency placement outside the southeast from there. I'd also appreciate any words of wisdom from current Vandy students on any topic.

    Mario,
    I guess that mostly depends on you. What do you want to do? How competitive of a specialty do you want to do? Do you want to go to Harvard or somewhere less competitive?

    Whatever the answer, I think you can do it from Vanderbilt. We have people match at HSS (top ortho program in nation - NYC), Harvard, Hopkins, wherever, very commonly.

    See the match list above for the proof, but from what I have seen, most people match at very good residencies. Stay tuned for Thursday's match!

    Thanks for the advice. I will probably end up at Vanderbilt next year and I'd like to know if you have any insight as to why you chose Vanderbilt over other medical schools (since most Vandy students are competitive enough to have multiple acceptances).
