Question Residency questions!

I got some questions that are bothering me, I need the answers if you can help me out.

1) What is the minimum YOG required to get accepted in IM with great step 1 and step 2 scores.
2) Difference between IM in community and university hospitals.
3) Can you name me some great community hospitals.
4) If I do my IM residency in a community hospital, what are my chances of getting accepted in cardiology fellowship in university hospitals
5) Can we do paid externship? If it's possible then how much will they pay us roughly
6) Finally, what do you think of this website: http://www.matcharesident.com/, has anybody ever used it?

Please guys if you can answer any questions, help me out! Thanks

Hey, there is nothing like getting paid for externship infact you will have to pay for it around 2000$. Ask your seniors in community hospitals how thier hospital is. Getting a fellowship in university hospital yeah quite possible. Answer to most of your questions are somewhr on this forum. Do some research.

Thanks for your time mate! I am still new to this forum, so still figuring out my way around it. Any moonlighting jobs I should apply to during my externship?

I dont think anyone will let you moonlight if you are not enrolled in a residency.
