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：
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
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.
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
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, :) ? )

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.
