I know a friend who's an attending there. I called him and he said they don't take IMGs, they did not take any IMG since 5 years!

Thumbs Up !!!

This is soo strange, I don't know about you cuppycake and why you are asking this question.. did they also invite you?
I wasn't gonna apply, my list is very short and made it, I saw the residents, there are no IMGs at all, and my qualifications are not good, (I failed the CS once, no USCE, otherwise not bad).. I'm being objective not pessimistic.. They invited me for an interview!!! I first thought that there's a problem or a mistake, maybe I read the email wrong, I even looked up "extending an interview" lool..
Anyway, since the chance came, I will give it my best shot and hope for the best
