Good scores >250 both steps but no USCE...

Is USCE required?
Possible to match without USCE?
It 's almost impossible to obtain USCE

USCE is not required except in some programs which might post that in their website but usually if they didn't have options they will interview people with no USCE to avoid ending with unfilled spots. USCE is a positive criterion that many PDs like to see in your CAF but it is not mandatory as I know hundreds of applicants who match yearly without USCE. Many factors play role in favouring one over another as good scores (which you already have), previous residency, visa status....
