Default How many IV are necessary to match ?

Hi People,

I am applying to IM and I only have 4 interviews at this moment, do you think that I am still going to receive more invitations by this time ?

Step 1: 247 1st
Step 2CK: 263 1st
Step 2CS: 1st
Step 3: 257

IMG, Graduated in 12/2009, USCE: 6 months, 4 LOR from US Attendings.

I am pretty worried if 4 interviews are enough to match ? Do you think that worths apply for more programs at this moments ?

Thanks so much for your attention,

If your number 1 choice ranks you high enough, you only need 1 interview. I know a couple of pips who matched with 1 interview.

By the way, with your scores you don't have any cause for concern, you will surely match as long as you have no red flags.

With these scores.. you are the cream already..

besides this is still early.. you will get many more until January.
Most likely you would be offered Prematch by some.
