We have created the chart below for you from data from Results of the 2011
Use the numbers in the chart to guide you to as to whether you have submitted enough applications to your specialty and transition year. If you are a top student in your class and are applying to a less competitive specialty, then you may not need to submit as many applications as indicated on this chart. However, if you are a less competitive student applying to a more competitive specialty or even medium level specialty, you should consider applying to more programs than the medium number listed in the chart. Any student that has experienced some academic difficulty should consider applying to more programs that indicated by the medians on the chart. It is not too late to do so before the end of September or early October. Overall, the median number of applications and interviews across the specialties has increased since 2009. We will post a comparison chart in the next few days.
