Here's what you can and cannot do

If you miss the match and the scramble it means that your profile has some defects.

Things that you cannot modify is the USMLE scores and years since graduation.

But things that you can modify and enhance your profile include:
  • Doing observerships, externships, research.
  • Passing USMLE Step 3 with high score.
  • Getting better letters of recommendations.
  • Trying to make connections with program insiders so that they may take you next year.
  • Switching to a lower competition specialty (like switching from IM to FM for example)
