Default residency interviews season : How long?

I am an IMG. I applied for the match this year and I am planning to travel to USA to attend my interviews. The question is : I am working right now as an intern in my home country and I need to take a leave to travel, so how long should this leave be?
Will a stay of two months in US ( mid-Nov to mid-Jan ) be enough to accommodate all the interviews or is it possible to have interview calls after mid-Jan?

Thanks all

Hey

As per my knowledge you will get almost all of your Interview calls by the end of October and only a very few maybe in first week of November. Chances of any calls after that are rare. And each programs gives you the liberty to choose from a list of IV dates e.g. One of the programs gave me dates from 28th Oct till End-Jan.

I believe you should be safe and would easily be able to accomodate all your interviews from Mid-Nov till Mid-Jan.

Good Luck with your match

Thank you

Yes I am .. I actually already scheduled my exam to late Nov. You need to know what are the best 3 months for you and apply about 3 weeks before since you cannot choose your eligibility unlike step 1 and 2. If you plan to take it for the sake of H1 visa then the best time is late Nov - early Dec because many programs require the result many weeks before the ROL , and that would be late Dec is best case scenarios
