看了刀兄的新贴,很同意你的观点。

我相信你不是在暗指什么, 但是我首先申明:
1. I had no any connection with the program I matched:not home program,
did not know anybody there. 2. I did not hide anything or distorted any information in my post.

然后说说我对进眼科难易的体会。 虽然我是进去了, 但回头想想真是如履薄冰,
如果让我再重新申请一回, 我会悲观的多的。 刚刚和一个本版也是今年申请眼科,
但未matched的CMG MM通话, 交流了一下我们知道的情况, 结论是:

眼科真的是很难!

strong connection (your boss is the chair or PD and willing to help) 第
一重要, US visual science Ph.D 第二重要, 其他的如,高分,strong LOR,
research, paper, home country experience, 也重要,但比头两条impact factor
差的太远了。没有前两条, 真的是要拿出”死嗑“的精神。 有几个回帖在我的帖子
里, 说其实有不少CMG眼科医生, 只要XXXX就不难。 至少这后半句, 我不敢苟同。
但鉴于我是那个才迈进门槛的人, 我不便反驳, 否则必被人认为我间接自夸和用心
不良:难不成就你进的去?你是想把别人都吓住?
 
给大家几个real cases 吧:

1. young 伊朗IMG, 99/99?, 20 IVs, attended 18, matched, but at her No.18
on the list.
2. not so young CMG: >95/>95, 7 IVs, unmatched
3. old CMG: high 80/ low 90, 1 IV, matched, home program.
4. several CMGs with US Ph.D in visual science: low 90s, 5+/- IVs, matched.


My conclusions:

1. Getting into small specialties is tough.
2. If I do it all over again, I will still apply ophthalmology, I will still
do my best in every single aspect I can control, including have a back-up
plan.
3. I believe there are many strong CMGs out there can make it.
4. Dok is such a warm-hearted, honest person, his points are worthy to take
serious consideration. That's why I would like to share with him my joy
right after I got matched, although he did not answer my questions while
I consulted him last year (I seem to can’t forget forever, :) ? )

附力刀简评:

Hi, kgmom:

This is a wonderful article on such a special case.
I\'m so happy to read your article. I believe u r a super CMG deserve
to be matched into ophth residency same as gira555 and many other super CMGs
matched their dreamed specialty in super programs. I\'m so happy to see what I
talked to you last year r wrong. Your experience proved u r right. I\'d have my
hat off to you. If considering u r a mom w/ two kids, u deserve much more
respect from my heart.

I changed title to pub it at my blog.

many many thanks for your excellent job and wonderful article which inspired
and encouraged many many CMGs.
