Default Matched in Psych!

Eh, I know it's a little late, but I want to share my credentials hoping it will be helpful to others:

Grad Year - 2013
Step 1: 229
Step 2CK: 217
Step 2CS: Passed
All first attempts

Had USCE from medical school and did research in between graduation and being matched. Had around 18 interviews (1 was prematch). I believe good LOR's and a good Personal statement really helped me. Good luck to all future applicants!

SOAP is for around two days for unmatched applicants happening between the first day when everyone receives emails just with YOU matched or you didnot match status and the MATCH day when everyone knows where y get into. in SOAP positions are filled mostly with unmatched AMGs and then its over.

Hello everyone! I need an advice, I am done with my step 1 and step 2 ck with good scores 245+. I am 2014 graduate. Is it prudent for me to wait a year before applying to the match as next year I wont be needing a visa? Given the fact that i can also apply in the coming match. I am so confused and don't know what to do. Please can anyone give me a sincere opinion that waiting one year for green card is worth the wait keeping in view all the j1 and h1 restrictions? i greatly appreciate any inputs.

In my opinion, with those good scores, just 1 year of graduation and the fact you will have a US green card for next year, it's a good idea to wait. However, take your CS soon and then your Step 3, as your knowledge is solid and still fresh. If you plan for a rotation, do it. With all those points on your favor you will match on the next year for sure

Yeah, I agree with Dr. Isabel. Since you're a fresh graduate with good scores, I'd wait till you get your green card. Keep in mind that "green card pending" is sufficient for you to apply. You just need to have the work permit before residency starts and not the green card itself. That's how I'm applying this year.

Default LORs: Quality vs Quantity?

Congrats everyone on getting matched!
I need your suggestion on observerships and LORs. I will have a LOR from a Univ program in July. However, for August, I have an option to either do observerships at two private clinics or at one single clinic where the physician is affiliated to a reputed Univ program. So, by Sept 15, I can have either 2 or 3 LORs. I am not able to decide which option to take? quality or quantity? how much of weight do LORs carry? I am very confused as a lot programs have 3 LORs as a requirement. should I go for quantity vs quality? Appreciate any help.

Thanks,
NoSoupForYou!!

SOap did not get canceled, but it is very low chance to match through SOAP for an IMG. as mostly american grads left outside match are filling those spots
