Default Urology residency?

Hi all,

I'm new to the usmle-forums.
I'm from India and I'm currently doing Urology Residency (3 year), in my second year at present.

What are the chances of getting into a urology residency if I can manage to get a non-research fellowship in US? Like endourology/ lap /robotic fellowships,like the ones provided by AUA?

I have one publication during my Gen surg training in a indexed journal.
No USCE.

I haven't given my steps yet, I need at rough picture before I can commit to the cause.

Thaking you in advance,

Scores >250-260 otherwise your chances are essentially ZERO. Sucks, but you need your scores before you'd have any chance of real assignment.

Research helps, but you need the scores too!

Thanks for the reply.
Much appreciated.

If you don't mind, can you tell me whether you're an AMG or IMG?
If you're and AMG, do you know any IMGs in urology residency?
I would love to here an IMG resident's perspective.

Again, Thanking you for your reply.
Keep up the good work.
