text after < are quotation from yf's post
Based on Yf’s post, what is the definition of malignant program?
My answer is patient population! How good or how bad of the program depends
on patient population.

I don’t agree w/ you. I “wasted” years to do postD for my green card.
This is pay back. 职场是战场.

I love yf’s posts. You tell the truth. Some people here are very stubborn.
They don’t know the reality. They don’t know the world 5 miles away from
them. We CMGs don’t have the equal opportunity compared to the graduates
from In, Pa, Mid east; don’t even mention the graduates from Europe. How
many IM programs are ranking CMGs? How many CMGs are ranked in those IM
programs they rank CMG (Lots of IM program never IV any CMGs!).

“I want to say, this forum is a little biased…”A little? A lot! 二饼大夫
Regarding 99/99. I suggest my PD focus on 85-95. Most of 99/99 have some
problems on interpersonal skills or 感觉过于良好. Don't be upset. We have 2-
3 99/99s every year. NO exception!
Most CMGs are not 99/99, old graduate (>10 year), with or without research
experience, with or without clinical experience: CMGs是一群有”先天不足”的
Best wishes for those who are waiting for Match results. I wish those who
were told being ranked very high get match next Mon (Promised). I wish those
who were not told being ranked get match next Mon (Surprised).

have to agree with you, Dr. 二饼，partially. 因为先天不足，CMG要付出比其他
IMG更多的辛劳。有些malignant的program要take advantage,也没有办法。this is
how the system works. 任何行业都是这样。
