Congrats to everyone who completed and sent his application. Like many I applied on the 1st to 30 OB programs and am waiting for the real game to begin.
I have low scores, need a visa and have no usce in OB, despite all that I do believe in God and strongly believe that whatever happens, happens for the best.

Lets all give each other strength through this time. Getting an IV doesn't mean you will match but does opena door of hope and bring you a step closer to the match.

Lets all post our IV and rejections as we go along in the 2010 match.

Ap date : 1 sep 09
Scores : 77/78/pass/79
Usce: none
Research: ongoing
Home country exp: 6 months in OBGYN

no IV or rejections so far

Good luck to everyonesmiling face

I am a 2005 grad and I believe I have very good LOR's..


Those who have low scores please gather here and tell us about your ob 2010 match experience.


A'ite guys, I'm in too. But why so few of us? By the way, I already got a rejection. But I guess that's all a part of the game.

Rejection from University of South Alabamasad


@delipost I got mine from residency place and counter checked the ifo with the website. Residency place is quite authentic. Its always god to check with several sources though. I could send you list but can you use it? its tailored to my credentials.

@tOoL . I hope you started getting Iv's

I got a rejection from Univ. South Alabama. I am in the boat with you tss.

No Iv's so far. I am keeping a positive attitude. I hope I can maintain it.

I do however feel that the list of programs I applied to might be incomplete. Can anyone help me regarding that? How do I know that I have applied to almost all the programs which might not need USCE, have no score cut off's and sponser a visa and I might have a chance there ???

Any feed back please.


No luck yet! still waiting... How many programs did you guys apply to?


Rejection from Albert Einstein Medical Center ObGyn, Philadelphia, PA

Ap date : 1 sep 09
Scores : 99/99/Pass
Usce: 1 mo, LOR should be uploaded soon.
Research: undergraduate
Home country exp: about 1 year in ob/gyn

Oceanpearl unfortunately most programs do not provide their criteria. They may not have any cutoffs but, it doesn't mean there are img friendly. When calling they usually say we review every application we receive through eras. As a general rule similar to other specialties community-based hospitals tend to have imgs more. We should be positive. Let's wait
