Oh the places you'll go

I have my first residency interview on Oct 30th. Should I go in costume? Maybe as a doctor... I think I want to stay in California. I applied to 5 programs in Northern California and 3 in Southern Cali. I'm also going to see a program in Albuquerque that looked interesting to get some variety. I want to choose a program with an associated Sports Medicine fellowship because you get better training in that area. However, only 3 of the programs I applied to meet that criteria (San Jose, UC Davis in Sacramento, and Santa Monica). So we'll have to wait and see which ones I like the best.

The way the residency applications work is weird. We submit our top choices in order (Rank List) and all the residencies submit their top applicants in the order they would like them. Then a computer matches us. It's called the Match. I'll get the results on March 15, 2007.

And then on to Graduation on June 1, 2007, but who's counting ;)
