Hi,
I too am applying for peds.
97/99/cs passed/80/ 2001 graduate. No need for visa, No USCE, infact no clinical experience at all for the last 5years, no research..
Applied to 28programs, got IV from 4..


  #14

Got my 2nd invite from Maimonides. Please guys if you know some details about the program let me know. Thanks!


  #15

Hello all!
Applied to peds on sept 19th 43 progs. IMG 2005 grad 89 step 1 ,will take step 2 in dec, awaiting results from cs. 3 mo rotation in peds @ Jackson Memorial in Miami.
Got 2 IVs on the 20th : Lincoln (NY) and Driscoll (TX)..Also got e-mail from Buffalo saying they were reviewing my app..
I know it s stupid but i feel like that s all i am going to get and all of this expectation of waiting for IV s is taking my attention off my studies and i am going really slow.
I have thought of withdrawing myself from this year and dedicate all of my attention to step 2.. i know i can get a good grade if i dedicate enough time.

What do u guys think???? Also, how bad do sh**** med school grades would affect me when it comes to getting IV's...Thanx guys!!

Graduated 2004, 3 months observership in 2005. US LOR 3. Need visa
Applied on sept 8 to 54 prog
Got 3 IVs: Georgetown, Cook, St. John in detroit
Got 3 rejections: UTMB, Mayo, Univ. New Mexico in Albuquerque
last email was about 10 days ago, have not heard from any program since...
