At this point, there is officially nothing else we as applicants can do but wait until match week. It’s an interesting feeling for me though because for the past 3.5 years, I’ve been doing everything I can to be the best student I could be. I’ve worked hard in the classroom, led organizations and volunteered in the community, studied my butt off for STEP1/2, plastered on my best smile on for my clinical rotations, … Continue reading And now we wait…
