Default 2014-2015 Internal Medicine Match Candidates: What are your credentials and how many IVs did you get?

As we are at the end of the interview season it would be nice to summarize the number of interviews IMG Internal Medicine candidates have received this match season (2014-2015).

For me:
Step1: 226, Step2 CK: 228, CS: first attempt, YOG:2014, 2 months USCE at Weill Cornell.
Number of IMED IVs: 6

Lets get this going so we know how we did with respect to getting interview calls.

6 IVs are good as people keep saying that if you get 220s in both steps then there will hardly be an IV. Can you tell the name of the programs ? Thank you

One more question. How much being in zero YOG helps in getting IVs?

I have scores in low 240s, passed CS on the first attempt, have not done step 3. I graduated in 2014 and have had 1 month of USCE. I will be requiring a visa. Unfortunately I was not able to get any interviews. So I guess it all depends on SOAP for me now. Prayers pls

sorry to hear that.. That's unusual. I'd say that's a good credential. I'm surprised you didn't get any. Did you apply late?
