Hi All,
Need advice for 2013 match. I am aiming IM, currently a PhD candidate in a top university (biomedical sciences program).
1) year of graduation: 2008 (i went to graduate school right after med school, no gap)
2) USMLE scores: step1 247/99, step2 ck 252/99, cs pass, step3 214/90
3) publications: several poster presentations in national conferences; 2 publications, will have 1-2 publications before I gradate in 2013.
4) LoR: 1 from home, 3-4 US LoR (1 from my phd advisor, who is an oncologist, 2-3 from the doctors that I have shadowed, all of them are faculty members in university hospitals)
5) no hands on USCE, several observership in a top university hospital
6) need H1b visa.
How many programs should I apply? Thanks a lot!

you have excellent scores and profile. Your YOG might be bit bothering for you but am sure your top scores and USCE will help you overcome this fact. I think with a reasonable wide application you will be able to get a decent number of interviews in IM. I advice you to apply to 80 -110 programs from those listed in our IMG friendly IM list (check my website).
