    Internal Medicine Subspecialty Match

    correct, it is the only one you can still apply to after 4 or more years. some programs only let you apply once.

    Unmathched Human Rights Complaint

    Let's not forget the fact that the OP did indeed secure a residency after medical school, and withdrew at his own accord. So when do we start talking how we should be differentiating between those who quit their residency to those who couldn't match straight out of med? Does your med school owe it to you 4 years out to quit a residency and be 'guaranteed' another spot? When they can't even match their first-time applicants?

    Rank List

    This is WRONG, please stop spreading misinformation. There are certain programs that actually say *even if you didn't get an interview, we still will rank you*. they may be rare, but it is certainly not impossible. It WILL NOT HURT YOU to rank a place you didn't interview. Whether or not you want to go there is completely separate from whether or not they decided to interview you.

    failed lmcc part 2 by one point

    one thing you don't realize until you write it is how heavily checklist-based the exam scoring is. if you watch the examiners after you finish your stations, the entire marking sheet is a scantron sheet; there is a giant list of items, you simply get a tick box if you ask something. it gets a little anxiety-provoking when you're wrapping up your station and you see a whole section that remains un-checked
  6. I put it on my CV to demonstrate interest in scholary activities in the field. it just occupies one line, so its not a major listing, but not sure why you wouldn't list it?
