hello again.
In applying for specialities, are there do's and dont's. Example can i apply to say-FM,IM,Ped and GenSurg so as to increase my chances for matching in any? Can one send application for different specialities to the same hospital? Thanks

sure, you can apply to as many speciality as many you want. All the information is confidential. if you are applying in IM and FM or Peads in same hospital, they would not even know about it, as applictions in diffrent department are handled by diffrent people.

1)Make personal statement really personal, they really read it.
2)show intrest in that speciality, in which you are applying.
3)you can not change your scores, year of graduation, make sure that your personal statement is really good.

Just don't copy and paste from some other personal statement. you can look at diffrent personal statement, to get an idea. but make it personal. in your own words.

Separate specialty

Make sure you have separate Personal statements tailored for the specialties you are applying for.

Having LORs from doctors in the specialties that you are applying to helps big time.
