IM is getting so tough these days. Some of the profiles in 2015 and 2014 threads were awesome. And the trend continues.

Default Should I apply this year or the next year

I know this may not be the best form to ask but as you all are IM applicants so I think I can count on your advice.

So I am done with my step 1 scoring 257, cs is on 31st August. I have 4 months of clinical electives some good LORs. I will be graduating in Nov. 2015.
Do you think it will be a good idea to apply with only step 1 score in hand and then I will have my cs result by the time of interview. And will have my ck result before match.

Or should I wait? Or should I apply to prelim IM programs this year?

Thank you so much guys.

It appears to me to be a rush. When do you plan to take ck. if maximum by September you can take ck then apply this year. If not next year and you will match into a great program with a great ck score not in a rush.

thanks methionine for making the online spreadsheet,
looks more organized. I would suggest to put an additional column
that says "Match Status" to know how many matched and maybe "interviews" for the # of interviews each
applicant gets, just to help for future applicants that would like to see the outcome of match2016, just a thought.

Default Photo

Guys whoever already uploaded their pictures. A little help.
I took my photo however when i resize it to there standards of 2.5''x3.5" it turns out to be very small about 10 kb and very small and bad quality
Anyone else had same issue.
Or is that OK.

THank you

The more the merrier! Usually it is "at least" 3. I don't think if you submit 4 it's gonna be a problem.

Default help plzzz

Hey guys, I have a question,

So i applied last year too, but at that time my letters did not take that long to be uploaded.
But this time they are still not on my dashboard. My question is, can we still apply on 15th if the LOR's are not there and can the LOR go to the programs even if I have applied (in case if the LOR get uploaded late).

Please someone help me on this..

Default Residency Interviews - The Only Way to Stand Out

The truth is that IM and FM programs that attract IMG applicants are all a numbers game. I trained my preliminary medicine year at a community hospital. This hospital with a program of 25 IM residents (all IMGs) received 7000 applications. Autofilters are the only way they can get to a manageable number. Once you pass the filter, it is 100% the interview. Mock interviews are good for practice but we recommend considering getting expert insight on how to answer the questions commonly asked, perfectly.

I don't have an MSPE, is this going to be a problem? Are INGs fine without MSPE since PDs don't care much about it anyway?

MSPE is not a problem at the time of application, however, it may be a problem when you're gonna get you medical license for residency. In TX, for example, the MSPE is a must to get ranked.
