Odds of Getting In

The job outlook for radiologists is very good. It's an in-demand field right now and is expected to grow faster than the rest of the job market. Residencies are becoming increasingly competitive, so aim for the top of your classes now. If you've got the kind of ambition it takes to climb to the top of your med school classes, it'll be smooth sailing the rest of the way. Okay, that's a lie. Radiologists are the crème de la crème, so if you want smooth sailing, just go for something chill, like brain surgeon.
