Default Honest opinion about my chances

European. Yog late 2011. Family Medicine Residency in my own country (Italy) completed on December 2015. No Gap in my CV. I am currently working as a GP. Scores: step 1 250, step 2 ck 250, step 2 Cs pass (first attempt for each step). About USCE: 1 week observership in a prestigious university, 2 weeks in a community hospital, 1 month of observership in another top university. 3 abstracts/no other publications.
I want to apply in IM. What are my chances to match in a decent university program or good hospital? Thank you

I think you have an excellent credentials. Only somewhat old grad but that does not compromise you too much. Try to apply broadly and do your best during IVs.

Good luck.

Star Great Application

I agree with the above response regarding Step 3. It's great that you have good scores, and you already have real world experience. Just be sure not to limit your application by applying to only a few. Apply broadly to keep all of your options open. You may want to go ahead and take Step 3 to be able to better pad your application.
