Hello Dr Hamlet,

Very surprised that you got only one interview. I believe that your credentials are good and with your USCE...wow.

When did you apply?
Reply
csverysoon- where are you? I had a question regarding my ROL, which I posted above.
Please guys-respond if you know. I am sure a lot of you are in my same situation?!

Dear Dr Hamlet

Don't feel lonely. You know what I mean. There are many who are in your boat.
I have a list which is another 50% longer than yours. Have had only a few interviews - even Harlem didn't call me though. Trust me - 237/255 is not a bad score I thought.

The frustration is because the competition for general surgery is far far far more than any one realizes it is. The advice to the future generation is - if you want to be a surgeon - have thick skin, lots and lots of money ( I mean for IMG surgeons and this partly applies even to AMG's )

To surgerymylife - yes you are right - if my understanding is right.

surgerymylife: thats the right way to do the ranking order list, right the cat first and then the prelim.

right_doc: thank you for the support and good luck to you too, and it seams we need to have elephant skin to survive this.

prednisone: thank you for your kindness good luck to you too, i applied on the 2nd of sep at 8:10 am, which means 10 mins after the eras opened up.

just dont give up guys.

drhamlet,the encouraging thing is that people have matched with only 1 interview. All we can do now is pray to God to do his will, since we have done all we could. Seems you did everything right including applying early and to several programs.All the best
