Would someone who Matched please share their Matching experience. The process seems very confusing. I am an American, IMG. If someone could break down the process it would be awesome.

build a (strong) resume --> apply to your programs of choice through ERAS --> wait/hope/pray for interviews --> rank the programs you interviewed (and liked) in NRMP MATCH ---> wait for about a month --> hopefully you match in one of the programs that you ranked ---> (if not matched) you can participate in scramble and you might get into an unfilled position
