>230, >240, CS first attempt, 8 years graduate. Surgeon in my country. NO Gap in CV. Only 2 weeks of USCE by time of application only one US IM letter.

11 interviews, 3 different specialties. 2 interviews through contacts, thats why I applied to other specialties. 9 IM interviews. 4-5 don't sponsor visa. I applied without CS. took in later in Sept. ECFMG certified on Dec 3. got 5 interviews after that. Refused Prematch. Thanks God for that!!
Emailed programs! I am 99.7% sure I matched to the program that I found vacancy on this website before tarting match season.

Good luck!

Oh I graduated in 2006. I'm 33 years old

Would you tell me more about your job as Biostatistician, I can't message you since I'm a fairly new to forums. I want to work and improve my financial standing while waiting for the match

Default Match advice

NEED ADVICE FOR THE MATCH!

This is my situation:

I am an IMG
Graduated 1 year ago
NO visa needed
Step 1; 205 passed first time
Step 2 CK: 235 passed first time
Step 2 CS passed first time.
I did a US rotations in Harvard and I got honors.
I have 6 LORs from 5 different Harvard doctors 2 from IM, 3 from ENT surgery and 1 from OB/GYN.
I'm doing research at MGH, I have 2 publications on revision right now.

I would like to know if it is possible to match in internal medicine or OB/GYN? and also if it is ok to apply this year or if it is too late.

What should I do to improve that horrible step 1 and have a better application? Do I have a chance to match somewhere?

Your opinion and advice would be so much appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!!!
