Question Residency Programs Responses

Hello!

Will I receive a response, either accept or reject, from every program that I apply to? I've received 3 invites to IV, 1 rejection and a bunch that I've not heard from yet.

Any ideas?

Thanks! AB

Most Programs which in fact rejected you, don't send rejection notification.

How many programs did you apply for?
Usually the response ratio is 20-40%.
So if you apply to 10 programs you should 2-4 responses.
If you have applied to 50 programs and so far you got only 4 responses it means there many responses that are not yet sent to you.
