Default Need prelim interviews, what to do?

Hi all!

I am freaking out at the moment because I do not receive any prelim interviews!

I did receive some interviews for Radiology and having visited 2 of these places already I feel very confident about my chances to match into these ADVANCED programs.

However, I have not received any prelim interviews despite having applied to almost 100 programs combined in prelim medicine, surgery and transitional.

I think using my PS for Radiology and adding a few lines about surgery/medicine/transitional year might have been a mistake.

Any advice?

Would hate to leave it to SOAP to roll the dice!

Thanks

Step 1/222, Step 2CK/250, Step2CS/Pass, Step3/december 2015, YOG 2013

so essentially how advanced programs work is that you apply to what you want then you also apply to prelim and you can match at 2 places?

Yep, you got it!

But if you only match for the advanced program starting summer 2017 and you have not completed a prelim or transitional year by then, you can not start the advanced program which is the nightmare I am facing right now!

I already applied to prelim surgery, prelim med, transitional year, coast to coast like 100 programs just for prelim year and nothing happens!
I did send out some emails but maybe I should be more aggressive calling everyone?!

I would really appreciate if anyone can help with some advice?
