I saw a lot of programs saying graduation within one year, and some saying within past 3 years. Some said 5 and some said 10.
Very few said no graduation cut off date.
Depends on what you were doing. If you were working it should not be an issue I think.
Hang in there

wow great scores, don't worry interviews will come it's only the beginning of the match season, you should know that most of IMG's don't get IV on september. that being said, you should look for some USCE while waiting for interviews to add it to your CV.
otherwise would you be kind enough to share your experience with the steps(materials- time needed- strategies ...) so that we can take lessons from it . thank you in advance

Yes working can help but if they have a YOG posted its a criteria they do not bend unless they know you.

Next week it will start moving I think


I'm reading programs are having problems this year with ERAS
and going over so many apps

yeah hopefully. and looking up every single program was so tiring... I graduated in dec 2013 though so it wasn't an issue for me.
but the op has really great scores, so should have hope.

It doesn't matter if you got 270s, being an old grad 10+ is a huge red flag.. Just apply broadly 250+ programs..

Easy to do with this years ERAS mess


I was thinking atleast 2 to 3 IV this year


Multiple attempts US citizen But passed S3 1st time and 2014 LORs 3 of them FM


Last year I had not passed S3 yet and Old LORS none in FM where I'm trying


So I feel I have a better App this year with YOG 2011 and current clinical hands on USCE



The OP scores are over the top hard to believe

^Hey guys let's not speculate like that. Everyone starts off with 1 post.
I started posting when I freaked out about no interviews though I have been visiting for a long time.....

Anyway, I do think that the 260s, 270s are stressful for those who are in 200s/210s (like me)...but everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, so let's not let anyone else worry us too much
