If you did your elective at a prestigious institution and it did not lead to research at that institution, your chances are much much lower.

Many of the ppl who I know who have landed surgery, ie Urology, ENT, Gen Surg(at prestigious institutions) have done it by elective --> research --> strong mentor pushing for them at that institution.

Make sure you start thinking about Plan B
