So I am applying to prelim year programs and I am quite confused by what's happening. I have received some offers from excellent programs that I've applied to, yet I haven't heard from quite a few programs. I called up a few, and for some, I am waitlisted since my application was somewhat late. i called about another one I hadn't heard about and the constantly irritated secretary told me that the selection committee had decided not to give me an interview. i was surprised! I have great qualifications and when I looked at the hospital's website, about 90% of their residents are FMG's!!!! What's the deal? Why would they not even want to interview someone who is an American grad, with excellent grades and another graduate degree over FMG's?! Am i missing something? why are good programs saying yes but crappy programs not interviewing me? I also don't understand why they would not even send a notice. Aren't all programs supposed to send some sort of notification?
