1st rejection from saint francis medical center,IL in pediatrics...i dont think i'll be getting any i.v call bcause every hospital says we have 10 slots and 2000 applicants are there,and every one is getting 99 these days..sad

@faiza99
So you got 1 rejection. If you were wise, you probably applied to tons of programs. Just wait till you get more responses till you lose hope (not that you ever should lose hope). All you really need is one program to take you right? More invites means more opportunities, but all you really need is one. Also, not everyone is getting 99s, and many people will tell you that.


  #18

i agree with jforjimmy,sometimes all it takes is one IV to match, but for sure we should try get more ,

faiza you will get something, just keep going.

  #19

well said jimmy...all u need IS ONE!!!


  #20

yeah pichy..thanks for starting this thread..I personally spend more time in the match support forum and rarely visit the peds one..even though am applying to peds and only peds...shame on medisapproval

will try to be more active here

IVs so far: Richmond NY, St Peter's NJ, Texas Tech El Paso, Mercer GA, St John MI

Am stressing out about the IVs..anybody interested in doing a mock IV over skype? do u guys think its a good idea? I was gonna do one on my own..don't know how that will work though.. any input is appreciated..

GL to all
