Question Take the prematch or wait the anesthesiology

I have an interview scheduled on 12th Nov for Anesthesiology university program where my uncle has a very strong connection (former chairman & PD Anesth dept.) BUT I have been offered IM pre match in a low tier community program.

I am confused if to accept the offer or hope for Anesth (they don't offer pre match & my uncle said he can only do his best which I believe he has done a lot so far considering my cv and late application)

Good luck everyone!

I think you should take prematch , because anesthesiology is highly competitive. Unless if your credentials are good enough to compete for the anesthesiology.
