When Residency Season Starts, Will You Be a Top Candidate?

Most believe that the chance of getting a residency is a coin flip, about 50 percent for most applicants. But, just like the Framingham Risk Score, there are variables you can change (LOI, recommendations, where you apply) and those you can't (college you attended, grades you've earned already). Under the "Free Resources" section you can find an Excel spreadsheet that can help you ball park your odds and let you know how much work you need to do.

The Letter of Intent Is THE most valuable piece of paper you can create

While your CV and Resume detail the past, it is your Letter of Intent that helps you turn your experiences into a vision of your future. It may seem easy to write a one to two page letter about yourself, but as you start to write it, you realize, "How do I turn 4 years of work and my dreams for the future into a compelling short work?" You would start with a template to help you get words to paper (or keyboard to computer) but then you need professional help, an experienced person who can see what gaps you need to fill and who can edit the work professionally.

You especially need a great LOI if you have some factors stacked against you like a poor college residency match rate or a specific geographic area you need to apply in.

Welcome to the Extreme LOI Makeover.

The purpose of this course is to help you gather the experiences that matter most when presenting yourself to a selection committee so you can work with an editor who can turn a good LOI into a great one. Just like buying a house, when you buy the first one, the consequences of a poor choice can last for years. What you want is to turn your thoughts into a professional quality, attention-grabbing (scanning friendly) letter of intent. This course allows you to become a student of the residency match game (well, it's more like the Hunger Games) so you can reduce your risk of losing a residency you should qualify for. Each section outlines another area that can increase your odds of matching and help you through some of the toughest questions. The penalty for not matching in your graduation year is severe - a 50 percent decrease in your odds.

… let's get to work.

Testimonials

Hello, I just wanted to update you that I matched! I applied to 7 places, interviewed at 4 and matched with my #1! I'm beyond excited and grateful to you for your help in this process. The LOI was a stressful part of this process and you helped to make it less stressful for me. I hope all is well with you!

Your support means a lot to me. You have helped me more than you know and I believe I am not the only student that feels that way. Most importantly, thank you for believing in me. It has been hard for me to be a first-generation college student with immigrant parents. I have had many firsts, and applying to a pharmacy residency program was no different. Thank you for helping students like me and making the process a bit more bearable. I honestly no way thought I would match the slightest.

I wanted to let you know that I matched my first choice! Thank you so much for all of the help throughout this process!

I also wanted to thank you again for the help with LOIs. So far I have been 2/2 for being invited to onsite interviews on the sites I have heard back on, and I'm sure my impressive letters had a large part in obtaining those!

I know you are probably getting 1000s of emails today, but I wanted to share that I matched with my #1 choice! I will be at . . . I really appreciate your help in writing my letters of intent. I honestly don't think I would have been as successful if I didn't have a great editor such as you! Also, all of your podcasts, blog posts, and books have really helped me prepare for the residency quest. Thank you again for all of your advice and support. I look forward to staying in touch on LinkedIn in the future!

After the experience of not matching last year, I am pleased to receive the letter that I matched for a residency this Friday. I would like extend my sincere thank you to you for helping me on my letters of intent. Thank you for going the extra miles to help me as well as other candidates. I would love to reach out to you again in December as I am planning to continue with my pursuit in PGY2.

Just wanted to let you know I matched at . . . focused PGY1 in . . . Thank you so much for your help in writing my letter of intent. I hope things are going well for you, and I will certainly be an advocate for you and your resources as I precept students along the way.

Looks like I'll be heading to . . . next year to complete a PGY1 at . . . ! Thank you for all of your help these past few months. Your help with my LOI really helped to push my application to the next level. I can't wait to see what happens next!

I just wanted to update you to let you know I have interviews and am thankful for your help!

Your edited version is absolutely fantastic. You were able to keep my voice present. You were also able to include all of my interests/past experiences in a naturally flowing dialogue.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping me write my letters of intent. You were a great resource and your suggestions were extremely helpful. The letters must have been great because I received an interview with all 3 programs I applied to! How exciting!

Thank you for all of your editing and help on my Letters of Intent. I am pleased to let you know that I have received several interview offers. The content you provide in your books and podcasts has been extremely beneficial especially these last few months. I am on the APhA-ASP email list and when I saw the opportunity to get your book I was so excited. I read the entire book today and thought it was great! Thank you again for everything!

I just got lost in the residency madness for a bit. I first wanted to thank you for your edits. They really helped me create a strong LOI and I have received interviews from some of my top places. I cannot thank you enough for that. I also am looking forward to joining your email list. I’m still listening to your podcasts, and cannot express how much I appreciate you providing amazing advice for pharmacy students.

Thank you again for your help with my letter of intent. I received an interview from . . . Be ready to receive a ton of requests next year for LOI reviews.

Thank you so much for the time and the effort you spent for helping me with letters of intent. The letter of intent was especially challenging to me since English is not my first language. I could not have gone through residency applications with a peaceful mind without you and your expertise. As the year 2020 is here, may the new year bring you happiness, health, and wealth.

Thanks again Tony,
