Need opinions and experiences..thank you
I know someone last year who had scores of 230+, us citizen, who didn't match. he had many interviews but he only ranked the university programs and didn't rank any community or uni affiliates ones. sadly, none of the univ programs ranked him high enough so he ended up not being matched.
my advice to everyone is, rank ALL the programs, unless you would rather risk going unmatched. you can always get the fellowship that you want if you put in the effort to do alot of research while in residency, even if it's a small community program.
