I got a rejection from WMich this morning and one from Emory yesterday, but I got an interview invite yesterday as well. I'm almost numb to these rejections at this point.

Emory
Beth Israel Deaconess
Western Michigan
University of California Davis
Johns Hopkins (really I'm just honored that someone from Hopkins physically touched my application, so no real disappointment here.....)
University of California Fresno
University of Michigan
UCLA Olive View

I know my serious paucity of interviews is partially due to my Caribbean-ness and partially due to having just 1 SLOE and 1 LOR in ER, but I SOOOOO hope I can snag one or two more IV's or match day is going to be terrifying.

What did your GW rejection exactly say? Mine said something about we will consider your application if others drop interviews. Does that mean waitlist or polite rejection?

Mine said the same thing. I think it is just a polite rejection.

So far, another day of rejections:

Ohio State
Duke (not unexpected)
USC LAC
U of Arkansas

I just really wish they would stop sending rejections through interview broker. It toys with my emotions

Same with Arkansas, Duke. I didn't apply to California programs b/c no PTAL. I only applied to Ohio State for combined EM/IM.

So interesting thing happened this morning: previously received a rejection from KU a few weeks ago, then had an IV from KU this morning. (and already double checked to make sure it was not a mistake )

All EM programs are great programs. Its about finding the one that fits you. As far as Step scores, the higher the better. I did average on Step 1 but busted my butt and was able to improve my Step 2. Several interviewers have commented on my improvement.

What's most important for a successful EM application is having strong SLOEs (Standard Letter of Evaluations). You need to do EM audition rotations at residency programs in order to get a SLOE. For an IMG 2 SLOEs are best, and 3 SLOEs are even better. If you do well on Steps (with a heavier emphasis on Step 2 CK) and get very good SLOEs, you should have a pretty strong application.

I would also suggest starting to look for visiting ER rotations for 4th year during your 3rd year. They are very hard to come by for foreign grads. You may have to contact MANY programs before you get even one maybe. Don't get disheartened.

Additionally, sign up for ACEP (or AAEP) and EMRA. They will send you a great little box with tons of helpful info for rotating in EM, and then you can list them as professional memberships on your CV which helps paint that you are committed to the specialty.

Good luck! It's very difficult but still doable.
