Default Complete and Competitive Application

Hello add1,

Without more information regarding your ERAS history, it is very difficult to suggest why you are facing so many rejections for the 2012 match.

The most common reason why one may come across rejections early in the Match season is because the minimum requirements for that program were not met. Some examples may be: low USMLE scores, weak letters of recommendation, lack of a sufficient amount of relevant U.S. clinical experience, an incomplete application, etc. Your rejections may be the result of a few of the items that I have listed.

In order to assess your competitiveness for U.S. medical residency, I recommend that you take advantage of Butterfly, which is an objective assessment tool that will help understand residency selection criteria, as well as how you may improve your application. If you have any further questions regarding hands on clinical experience or the competitive index, feel free to private message me
