Dear Applicant,

We would like to thank you for your expressed interest in our Internal
Medicine Residency Program. However, I regret to inform you that you have not
been selected to interview at Jersey City Medical Center.

Each year, we get more and more applications, and each year, the candidates
get better and better! We have scores of really great candidates and many
"not the right fit for our program" candidates as well.

Please do not let this hinder you from striving to achieve your goals!!!

For those of you who weren't as solid as your counterparts, you should take
this time to do some introspection and change those things which you can
(obviously, you can't redo medical school or erase past USMLE scores, but you
can do research, publish articles, present posters, rework your personal
statement, go to grad school, and other such things that will make you more
viable and place you on a more even playing field). Honestly speaking, you
might be one of the best doctors in the history of ever, but if you don't come
across strong on paper, it is very hard to get a chance to present yourself in
person.

For those of you who have been trying for years, if not decades, I do applaud
your perseverance. With that said, it does get harder to secure residency
spots as the number of years since your med school graduation increases.
There are a lucky few who will land spots, but for the majority, the harsh
reality is just the opposite.

For all of you, please do know that things do happen for a reason, and what's
for you is for you. If you are meant to be some place, or if an opportunity
is meant for you, it will happen!!!

We do appreciate your interest and wish you all the best! Good luck and God
bless in your future endeavors!!!

The decisions are pretty much final, and we do request that you not bombard us
with emails and/or phone calls, and respect our decision.

Thanks and all the best!

TD

  I highly doubt that this is real. Most people don't use more than one exclamation point in formal written communications.
