Default odds for IM and FM?

IMG - visa needed
YOG 2013
Step 1 - 200 (2nd)
Step 2ck- 228
Step 2CS - Pass
Step 3 - taking in late sept
No research
USCE- 2 yrs carb grad
Observership with old attendings from clerkships: 1 months IM, 5 month Familyy Practice/walk in clinic
I LOR from IM attending, 3 LOR from FM, 1 ER LOR
applying for IM/FM residency

I am a repeat applicant, last year i applied only to FM. Do I have any chance for IM programs, I beleive FM i will have a better chance. Also, for the memberships if applying to FM should I include AAFP member even though I will also be applying for IM!

thank you

Star Apply broadly

I think the most important thing is to apply broadly across the US. Make sure to have stellar LoR from programs and professors from your medical school and/or places you have worked. I would also say once you get your passing CS score make sure to submit it that day to the residencies you applied too. I would also consider taking Step 3 very soon (would be a another gold star on your application). A great Step 3 score would show you have mastered a lot of clinical concepts. Also working in the healthcare setting (or research) would be another positive.

I hope that helps a little,
