Default Year of graduation and family medicine.

How much does the year of graduation play a role in the match for a 2008 graduate? Especially with regard to family medicine. Thanks in advance.

Some programs have a +5 YOG cutoff and wont consider your application even if you meet all their other requirements. Make sure to check the program's website before you apply and keep your hopes up because there are a lot of old grads who matched last year, so why shouldn't you

I was hoping you could clear the YOG for me. I'm a 2010 grad. If I apply next year (2015/september) am I considered 5 years post grad or 6 years since residency will start in 2016?? Thanks for any help.

If you apply on Sep 2015, residency will start in July 2016. You will be 5 years post graduation by then. You always count till the day you apply in Sep and not when you start residency.

So sorry, misread your post. Thought you said 6 years. Anyway, thanks so much for clearing it up. I was having kittens wondering whether to rush an application or wait one extra year and get as much USCE as possible.
