Help Didn't Match, Please guide.

Credentials: 224/216/CS (2nd attempt)/ 222/ 2014/ 7 months US experience (2 months FM, 5 months IM) / need Visa

Applied for IM and FM this year. Got only one Interview in IM. But no luck in the match.

If there is anyone with the same credentials who made it through the match, please guide.

It is quite doable. several of our students last year with similar scores and attempts in Step1 or CS matched. FM will be tough for you due to your needing visa. glad to discuss if you want.

I had a similar experience...just wanted to give you a heads up about companies and scammers that offers false hope. I had a very bad experience with "Training for Residency", which wasted my time, money an ruined my application with 8 IVs!

Every applicant should diligently check on the advisory companies, what the profile is, who they will work with and what they will get in return.
