we need to get the Statement of need from the goverment, which the goverment only gives with a bond. Thats why I am doing step 3, I know this year this year will be hard to get it. I get so mad thinking of all this.

No no according to last released sources,its year of work(5 years at least)..it clearly states no money will be able to compensate it....one can't find a waiver job in the States too if that NOC is not released....don't know how they passed the resolution so quickly and that too in such an unconstitutional manner
Phew they want US returning doctors to work in rural Indian settings..Lol..

if we sign the bond, then I guess there would not be a problem getting J-1 visa. According to my knowledge, we have to return and work in India, does it specify rural India?

How do you know that resolution is passed?

As many as you like. But, one p.s. per program. And 3 min 4 max per program. Some programs specify as to how many LORs they need from your school and who they need it from.

You can only send one ps to each program. Whether you want to send the same one to all specialties, different ones to diff specialties or different ones to each program is your choice. The limit is one per program
