    yes, you are right.

    Sorry, that was just a contextual error.
  5. You asked the Cards question already in one of your previous threads, and got some good responses:

    Cardiology: how tough to get a spot out of IM?

    And as I stated earlier, there's a huge difference between Cards and Ortho. Why not wait until you start med school to see which interests you more? Then you'll know whether or not you have to focus on things like away rotations and research with big names (Ortho) vs. Step 2 CK, Step 3 (as a resident) and publishing (Cards).

    Wait, OP isn't IN school?

    Dude, let's focus on passing exams before we start worrying about whether we can moonlight in the ED or how to become a cardiologist or any number of other assorted long way down the road questions you seem to be full of.

    Cartoon vs. pictures anatomy book dilemma: applicable to your situation.
    What you have to do to practice cards specifically in NY: not so much.
