Default Opinion for apply IM today 11/21/2014

I am really depressed cause I did not apply in different programs. I just apply family medicine, and I did not get any interview invitation. What do you think if I apply internal medicine right now? It will waste the money or too late, to apply the programs because the programs don't have enough time to review the application. Step1 219 , step 2ck 218, step 3 204. I think it is not going to help or to get interview.

Even if looks it's late if you are willing to invest $95 and apply for 10 programs, why not? A friend of mine with scores like yours (and no Step 3) applied last week and he got an interview for Surgery. I recommended him to give a try and he got this interview. You never know; apply for realistic IMG friendly programs. My friend doesn't have visa, by the way. Keep the faith

I sincerely doubt if you will get any interviews after applying today. Most programs have already reviewed applications and are actively interviewing candidates that turned theirs in way earlier than yours.
