I have been interested in plastics but am a pretty avg applicant all around at the moment. I would be happy doing Gen surgery and then figuring out my fellowship options. 1) Would it hurt me in any way to gun for plastics (i.e. research/away electives) and see what happens? 2)Would it cause me to sacrifice a better gen surg spot when ranking? 3)Do you think it would even be possible to match with avg scores, or am i absolutely wasting my energy?
