What advice would you give medical students applying for a residency in OBGYN?

“Fourth year can be extremely stressful because you feel as though everything has to be perfect, but try to give yourself grace! Somehow, everything always has a way of working itself out. Try not to compare yourself to others, and remind yourself that you are interviewing the schools just as much as they are interviewing you!”
