Default IMG in US Medical School. Please advise!

Hi everybody! I am an IMG graduated in '07 and currently US lawful resident.
I realize that my chances of getting matched are not high, besides I haven't even applied for USMLE steps.
So now I am thinking about getting into med school here and starting all over. Where should I start? Do I still need to evaluate my diploma through ECFMG? And what are my chances of getting accepted to one of schools here in US?

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance guys!

I did the usmle exams and did'nt get a match, i contacted medical schools in my state, they said evaluate your diploma and do MCAT( you should get 30+),some schools will tell you based on your evaluation how many credits hours of science you need may be a year or so!.. it depends on the schools some they ll tell you start the science all over so you probably you should contact schools in your state.

Thanks Lolit.

I actually figured the same. Talked to a couple of med schools, actually a couple of top schools in US which are in my state. I guess I am never going to become MD here, starting all over (including doing premed) is too much for me.
Wish you good luck which ever way you choose!

Then start doing usmles and score high or go to public state medical schools their requirements would be less
