Default Observerships after September.

Hello friends!

I plan to apply for the 2016 match, as I have no USCE nor observerships in the USA I was planning to do an observeship before I apply. The problem is that I only managed to get an observership during the month of October. :S

As I will be sending all my documents to residency programs on September 15 to apply early, is it a good idea to still do the observership?? I wil not be able to get a LOR on time from this observership.

Thanks for your advice!!

Cool

you can still contact them during your observer and let them know. or if they give you interview, you can carry your LOR with you.

on the other hand, if you do apply and match, you got USCE.
on the really bad hand, if you do apply and not match, you will get USCE and being an stronger applicant next match season.
