    Just for uro. They run their own match and do it early. Optho does the same thing.

    Everybody else is still in March

    Wife is halfway through intern year, she’s only expressed wanting to quit or die a handful of times so I think it’s going well.

    Applying for residency this year is going to suck. Most likely no away rotations and interviews are likely via zoom. Fuck me.

    Ortho. Getting really nervous to be honest. I have the step score and publications to be competitive, but I haven't been as proactive as I should have about building relationships with the faculty at my school. So I was relying on SubI/aways to get some good letters and now that's not happening. Just have to wait and see what happens. Not having in person interviews especially sucks because there's no way to get a good read on a program/the people at it via zoom/skype/whatever.

    Stats are the most important thing to get your foot in the door. Interviews seal the position. Just have to remember that everybody is in the same boat.

    might be worthwhile to reach out to your programs PD or another faculty member you trust and let them know the position you’re in to see if they can offer advice/help you out.

    I'm going to do that this week. Worst part is it was going to be difficult to begin with couples matching with my girlfriend doing OBGYN. This whole situation made it 100x worse.

    Was actually talking to one of our staff about this the other day. They’re really just going to be able to rely on scores this year. Sucks, but everyone is in the same boat.

    Not a bad idea to reach out to people you know at different programs and email coordinators at places you’re applying.

    Feel bad for the people finishing residencies/fellowships this year and next. Job market for several specialties has went to shit. Finding good radiology jobs went from take your pick to tough shit basically overnight. Our recruiting guy is salivating at the thought of having his pick of the litter and being able to dictate terms for the first time in about 5 years

    That’s awesome. CS is such a waste of time and money. Fourth years still getting a little bit of a raw deal not being able to do aways or in person interviews but at least you’ll save a lot of money.

    Depends on the circumstances. Most places are only letting people rotate if they don't have a home program in the field they want to rotate in. Also, a lot of institutions aren't letting their students do away rotations. MCG won't let us get credit towards graduation for any we do, unclear if we can do them and not get credit.
