I've heard from a fairly reliable source that Colorado only invites rotators to interview. Anyone know if this is/isn't true?

I've been told this is not true, though they do highly consider their rotators. In addition, they do not interview all their rotators. c5

I would like to reassure you that I know at least one NR who will interview in Colorado this year.

Does anybody know how competitive Denver is for residency? It's not classically listed in the silly "top 10 residency" lists, but I know everyone wants to live in Denver and that their program must be pretty tough to match into. I'm a 3rd year at a school in the midwest. I was hoping to rotate through Denver next year, but was curious how selective they are. Any advice or things you've heard through the grapevine would be awesome, thanks!

I think just like many other prestigious programs, Colorado is also very competitive. Not sure which programs included in top 10 list, but not everybody has the same rank... For me U of Colorado is within top 5, because I would consider the location of the program, facilities, organized nature of residency training, quantity and quality of surgeries you can perform. These are all factors that put U of Colorado within top 5 for me. Department chair, program director and rest of the faculty are also so valuable there. Perhaps you can find out more and decide for yourself if you get a chance to rotate there.

Good Luck

I certainly agree with you. Having not rotated their I can only speculate, but I imagine I would rather be in Denver than many other of the "top" programs, like HSS, as an example.

Do you know if they have a step 1 cutoff? Just trying to get an idea if it's even worth it for me to rotate there if I don't have much of a chance at interviewing, let alone having a legit shot at matching.

Thanks for the help.
