* Chance of matching into residency?
 #852793

  Hello friends, I have above average scores and extracurricular activity and I honored every course in medical school, Caribbean graduate, I have 2 years united states clinical experience. I applied last year and spent 10,000 and did not match despite not having any red flags.

I am not giving up and I am persistent and confident that I will match regardless of what anyone says. I believe in myself.

There are a bunch of bullies I am having to deal with who are harassing me and they tell me not to apply for residency.

Should I apply this year again? Thank you for your advise.

  I think the fact that I excelled during 4 years of medical school, and 2 years of clinical rotations in America and aced all my exams and even helped many patients get better, I am confident I will excel during residency.


I believe in myself and I will not give up. I am going to start my application today, I will get the money even if I have to take out another loan to apply.

@pinochioishere: You will definitely match! It will help a great deal, if you can do rotations at two to three ACGME programs between now an rank order list submission day.

Good luck!!!

  People can say whatever they like or think whatever, I am going to apply this year and I am going to match into residency and I am going to ace my residency and become a good physician

  Dont give up and apply for this match again. Try to improve your CV and gain connections which can be helpful during the IVs.
Gain hands-on clinical experience where you can get good experience and will be provided with strong LORs.
