So I just have to rant and rave a bit. I'm an M3 who is praying I get into Radiology and then I hear about all these f'ing idiots who don't match into their chosen fieleds (ortho, derm, urology) and then scramble into a radiology residency AND GET IN. I mean, I know I'm a lowly M3 who knows nothing about anything but if I was a PD, I would take someone who is not as competitive but genuinely showed an interest in the field (i.e. applied for it initially, had some EC's that demonstrated interest) rather than take some f'ing TOOL who is only shooting for it because they didn't get their first choice field. I personally know of 3 individuals at my school and one at another school who have successfully scrambled into Radiology but who applied to programs in different specialties in the match. WTF WTF WTF!!?!?!?!?!?!
