Hi everyone, after serious thinking and consulting, I decide to take the
prematch. Thanks for all the advices you guys gave me here: the options
maybe different, but there is no right or wrong advice, all sincere advices
are great ones ...

I will share some of my thoughts with you guys, hope it can be useful for
some of you in the future, as far as you remember this decision may not
be the right one :), we can see five years later ....

As an old IMG with certain amount of experience, I know the difference b/w
getting the most you can get and getting what you need.

My primary goal for residency is clinic training and licensing. Better if
I can get into a good program with a reputation that will help me, or use
as a pickup line in the bar :), but that is secondary ... My understanding is
the big difference b/w community and teaching hospitals are the research
opportunity, for me it is not important as I have enough, I doube I will
do better research during busy residency than doing it full time now at best
institute ... The teaching hospital is better for AMG as they can kill two
birds (clinic and research) with one stone. For fellowship and job hunting,
I still have good chance (thats my after all judgement and an important
one).

The second is to weight the risk, if I couldnt get matched, as a consequences
of refuse the prematch, whats the price? I will be one year old next year, I
will have to go through a hell of self doubt and regret and uncertainity ...
And I do know more than one person who turned down prematch (they got to have something good/great to do that) and left unmatched, it is painful to just
look what they have to go through .... with less than 5 IVs so far, that risk
for me is not that remote ....

The third is my feeling about the program. Actually I had a good feeling
about it, and that is a very important one to me. I have been to a lot of
working places, and believe me, you wont always meet nice ppl in top10
places --- sometimes it is the opposite becoz too much ego can can be too
much :)

So here I am going, going, and gone ... :) I wish you guys all the best
and thanks again for sharing your thoughts, espeically dokk and jimmy who took
time to share their experiences here. I really appreciate it ....
