I had a question regarding application. Is it advisable to apply both primary care and categorical tracks in the same program ?

Is there any point to just posting your stats and that's it? How about we make a whatsapp group where we can ask questions back and forth? I think posting stats is useless unless you're specifically asking for some advice, and the one giving advice needs to see your stats to assess your situation before giving said advice.

The whatsapp groups get very chaotic. Just be patient and review the same post from last year. This is a good way to go about solving our doubts.

Help Osteopathic programs

Hi

Could anyone please clear this confusion.
Can we IMGs apply to these programs? The program description says so but the PD and most others in the selection committee have a D.O. after their name. Is it worth applying to these programs? I mean do they actually consider non D.O. students?
Some programs clearly mention osteopathic recognition while some don't.

Thank you for the help.

You could try to apply without it but it will reduce your interview calls, obviously a lot of programs will waitlist you pending cs, but maybe by the time your cs results are released they would have filled up their interview spots, but hey if you have the money why not try.

Listening YOG

One of the programs mentions this under their eligibility requirements:
Graduation date less than five years from the year that you are applying.

What does this mean?



Thank you!

Depressing. Do I have a chance still for this season?
Any resources for less competitive programs or those in underserved areas?

Guys, anyone has heard anything from programs?
I was looking at other forums and some people have already received acknowledgements from programs where I applied too.
I am freaking out whether the programs even received my application or not

It is extremely hard to get high scores when you have a family and work full time, but it is better than not applying at all. Best of luck to all applicants!

No, the other McLaren in Clinton/Mt Clemens.

I think he meant the city (Flint), which I'm fine with. Going to seek out some tacos there later...I'm in the area often.

Any WhatsApp group for IM?
Anyone know what the consequences of late submission (~5 days) are? Kinda worried now.

All the best to everyone!

I've just got a couple of acknowledgments. I applied late. No IVs yet. Should I be worried?

Hi all,

Could you please send a list of acknowledgements you have received? I applied 2 days late, and would like to know whether the programs received it.

For IM: Yale-Waterbury, Aventura, DMC/WSU, Georgetown U/Medstar, Henry Ford Allegiance. If you applied and it shows in 'programs applied to', then it was sent to them and they can see it. You can double check assignments report in ERAS to be sure everything has been assigned properly.

Decided to post, since I remember myself freaking out in early October last year. I got 250's in both steps and US lors, but had 1 IV in September only. Guys, most IV's come in October. I started receiving mine in first week of October through end of November. I received enough to match (10). Some places were pretty terrible. The point is, there is no good reason to freak out now. Enjoy your time. Internship requires a lot of energy, mental as well. Don't waste it

Default It's normal feeling guys!

Do not get scared if u have no interviews now.
Most interviews come in after release of MSPE. By first week to end of October most, I mean >80% (don't ask me how do you know) of the interviews come in. Exceptional applicants or people with connections do get interviews even in December or January and at times February. Look out for the new programs that would receive accreditation early October and apply to them if u have average scores. It's a cool way to get interviews easily.
Don't trust programs so much until u really match there. There is a great deal of pretence in the process.
Stand out in your interview skills.
It's good people are sharing their number of interviews but don't freak out if you are now getting interviews. There is always a perfect timing and when that time is due no one can hold your invitation. Yes I mean it and u will match in a great place it's all a matter of time.
It's normal to have some stress and anxiety, yes it's tough but do your best. I'm glad I matched at a university program. I least expected that, I know I'm confident but the fears of unknown can make you loose that sometime especially if you were once bitten. I'm not frequent here but would stop by to offer help especially on my day off.
And yes, do not ask your chance of matching since honestly no one here can answer that perfectly but in my opinion we all have chance and looking at only scores will not let us guide anyone probably.
And yes help each other, and do not think by helping someone you give them advantage over you. That's not true. And if u are the type who keeps getting from people and never gives back, know that you are not helping yourself. Don't think you are being smart.
Remember all these would be history soon. It's a matter of time!

Thanks for this mood booster. But so many people have already received replies from many places. When should we really start getting worried if we dont receive IVs? My scores are average 230+ 240+. So many people have 250+ and made it look easy.

Look through last year's thread...a few invites did go out in September, but it didn't pick up until October and carried on well into December. A friend of mine didn't get anything until October, but walked away with 10+ IV by the end of it. Best thing to do right now to keep a free mind from worrying is prep, go over common questions, have your interview clothes ready to go (do they still fit...I've been running more), etc.

Good to know MrUnderhill87. Thanks a lot for sharing. Yes they still fit. I've been blessed with not gaining weight.
Good luck to you. Could you please check your inbox. I have a question for you. Thanks!

That's great! Do you mind me asking whether you expressed your interest towards a fellowship or working in primary care/hospitalist?

aparently, people who answered "primary care" received another email that says something along the lines of "then why didn't you apply through our primary care program duh?"
