  Second Looks
Posted by: Guest - 9 hours ago - Forum: On the trail - Replies (2)

Are more programs going to do second looks this year since they can be virtual instead of in person?

  Match Day Weirdness
Posted by: SpaceGhost - 01-23-2021, 12:55 AM - Forum: On the trail - Replies (39)

My classmates and I can’t decide if it’s more likely that match day will end up with a lot of people in seemingly random programs or if everyone is more likely to just end up at their home institution if they have one at their school. 

Not just NES but all of the competitive specialties that take super small numbers for new resident classes. 

What do u all think

  Having a family during residency
Posted by: Guest - 01-22-2021, 09:57 PM - Forum: General resident issues - Replies (3)

I’m MS2 and am working toward a neurosurgery residency spot. My wife is concerned about what it will be like for her when we hopefully have kids one day, and our “ideal” age is toward the end of Med school/beginning of residency

Am I just naive in thinking it’s doable? Are there any advice you have?

I’ve asked residents about this at my home program but I kind of feel like I may get a more candid reply anonymously.

Whats the difference in interviews between day 1 and 2? Seems like overkill. 
Also heard they're interviewing 100 ppl this year

  Number Needed to Match
Posted by: Guest - 01-11-2021, 10:51 PM - Forum: On the trail - Replies (13)

The most recent Charting Outcomes data states that ranking 16-18 programs gave you a safe chance of matching. 
I had 16 interviews this cycle. Am I safe or should I be concerned that the number needed to match (NNM) this pandemic year will be closer 
to 25 based on buzz among applicants? 

Residents involved in committee meetings- are your programs ranking more people than normal this year?

  case volume with covid

How are your volumes affected after COVID? Still struggling with elective case volume? 
Just curious how other programs are doing.

  Sample Study Schedule
Posted by: Guest - 01-02-2021, 03:25 PM - Forum: ABNS - Replies (1)

Anyone have a sample study schedule they'd like to share? Or a list of resources beyond the standard Psarros/Citow/SANS?

Any thoughts on the minimum amount of study time one should take if taking for credit? Is 10 weeks enough to do well?

Appreciate it!

  UChicago Residency?
Posted by: Guest - 01-01-2021, 01:02 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

Does this program have much of a reputation? I would assume that they’re more “academic”, but I can’t see where their alumni went. I haven’t read much at all about them which is a bit surprising given its UChicago
