New York Did an IMG ever matched in NYU?

Has any IMG ever matched in NYU...does nobody know of any one who's ever got in there.....
if they have a research experience and good scores is it possible....
or it never takes IMGs ever?

Stop NYU is an AMG-only club

There's no IMG ever in the history of New York University has ever matched with them in any specialty.

This is an AMG-only club my dear and you should not think of it at all. To substantiate what am saying have a look at this page http://www.med.nyu.edu/registrar/cli...hlist2007.html you can see nobody is from overseas, they are all AMGs.

But IMGs can go there for electives, an IMG can get matched in Brookdale Hospital, that hospital sends their residents to NYU for electives during the second year of residency.

If you have very high scores, USCE, researches & connections there..why not??

Everything started from Zero...why not to be the first to be accepted there?

Stop If you are not satisfied

Which it includes PGY1 and PGY2, so that's a complete two years list and not a single IMG is there.

If you are not satisfied yet, have a look here
http://emergency.med.nyu.edu/news/20...nt-page-news-2
That's a list of EM residents and once again you'll never see a single IMG.

My dear, NYU is well known here in USA that it does not accept IMGs outrightly and without any doubt about this fact. Their coordinator filters out all IMG ERAS applicants up front, no discussion about it.

NYU is even a dream for AMGs! They strive to match in it. Manhattan is the most expensive place in united states and certainly it has one of the most prestigious universities in the whole land.

One is a pretty old IMG; he did basic research in the US for almost 7yrs. His step 1 score was somewhere around 90%.
