Lebanon I ended up matching

It has been a tough year from last year.

this year I did things differently. applied more broadly and widely and I ended up matching to a Categorical program.

Had only 6 IV this year and I matched. Feel free to PM me if you did not match and maybe I can help.

My advice for now is do Step 3 before applying , apply to everything and make sure you do the best interview you can.

Congrats, into what specialty you matched?

do you think step 3 helped you matching or at least getting more IVs?
