Unfortunately, with these credentials, your chance in securing a residency in a university hospital is almost zero percent. Even IMGs with double 99s rarely accomplish this. In short, university hospitals are for AMGs or American or European IMGs with high scores.

Apply to community hospitals only.

Haisook, realistically speaking, what are the chances of an IMG matching into a university program?
Have you applied to community programs only?
I need to know if it is worth all the money because I'm planning on doing 2-3 months of electives.

possible... but some low tier uni prog r definitely not as good as some community programs.
If u r talking about mid tier and high tier uni programs, the chances is close to zero...
