In this episode, I review some of the many characteristics of a residency application that matter in improving one's odds. But, instead of generalizing, you want to use these attributes to make sure you are applying them to the right place. 

What increases your odds of matching? increased applications, interviews, research abstracts, and GPA.

What pharmacy school characteristics matter? Public, older schools, higher NAPLEX pass rates, and affiliations with academic medical centers. 

But, there are clear exceptions, many of the best matching schools are private schools with no AMC affiliation. Some colleges with terrible NAPLEX pass rates earn residencies at a high rate. Knowing where you stand is key.
