Prematch offer - should I accept
I'm a Caribbean student with step 1 and 2 scores of 95 and 99 respectively. I'm Canadian so I require a J1 visa. I am trying to match into an internal medicine residency. I have 6 interviews and was recently offered a prematch position from a community-university affiliated program. I would have ranked this program last if I had not been offered the prematch offer. Should I accept this offer? I had one university program interview, the others were stronger community-uni affiliated hospitals. All program directors have been in contact with me from each of my interviews indicating that I am a strong candidate.
Would it be a mistake to reject this offer given that I only had 6 interviews? Thanks for your input!
