This is a community hospital affiliated with a university and about 20-30% of residents go for fellowships, but almost all are IMGs. Any suggestions would be welcomes, I am very confused as I wanted it but now that I have it, I am told I can have better.
Kind of late, but to up heed the discussion, why even consider not accepting the prematch offer? You visited their website, saw their list of requirements and witnessed that you could fit, used up $25 of your hard earned money and above all, were offered to sign with them. This is something I find so absurd and have yet to understand.
Should I not ask my girlfriend whom I dearly love to marry me even though she is nice, honorable and understanding due to the potential of finding a skinnier, curvier, sexier girlfriend? Even though I'm running 1/16th on my gas tank on a desert highway, should I not fill up on the next gas station 0.5 miles away rather than continue driving hoping to find a better gas station with lower prices? Should I not buy a winter coat with respect to the potential of tomorrow being a warmer day?
I remain puzzled.
