It's better we be active here instead of in a private group. Many people are mere spectators anyways on WhatsApp which I don't like. If I change my mind I'll let you know.
Anyways guys keep it coming.

Some of the programs on ERAS are having "Incomplete Registration" which is why I'm not able to save them. Why is that? I don't remember that happening last year.

I contacted ERAS and they told me that they are constantly in touch with those programs to update their registration. Dont know what is taking so long for them.

Since you are a fresh graduate with US rotations I don't think you should have trouble getting at least 3-4 interviews even with an attempt in CS.
I myself applied to about a 100 programs last year which was a mistake. This time I did my research about programs and will apply smartly.

yeah I see. So you applied to about 100 random programs last year? I am doing my research a little but was applying mostly based on geography. Its insiane that you only got 2 invites when you applied to 100 programs and your a US-IMG. Why did you wait so long to apply after graduating?

With these credentials and being a very recent graduate there is no reason why you shouldn't match. Good luck and keep us informed about IVs and stuff.

Most programs require Step 1 score 200 or above.
You are a recent graduate.
You have more than enough psych experience
You have a lot of publications
I don't see any reason why you shouldn't match.

Have you gone through the program requirements for all the 130 programs?
Did you see IMGs on their website?
If you are eligible to apply according to their application requirement and these programs have IMGs as current residents then apply to as many programs as you can as long as you have the money.

Good credentials except for the CS attempt but I think your vast research experience will make up for it. Take into account your YOG and CS attempt when choosing programs to apply.

Default need opinion

i need some opinion from u guys, should i apply for IM nd FM . i do have IM experience but any one looking at my CV can see that psych experience is much more and guess that IM must b back up. i have IM letters as well.
I dont have any FM letters on experience, so should i still apply to FM maybe 30 programs?

Don't apply to FM when you don't have any FM experience.
Apply to IM but do not apply to too many since your CV is psych-based.

I am applying to a total of 66 psych programs after doing extensive research by calling/emailing them.
Your YOG and vast USCE should make you able to apply to different specialities. Getting step 3 out of the way would also be helpful for psych.

Scores are good except for the attempt in step 1. Step 3 result would help and so would the research experience. Did you apply last year?

Damn! That was quick. With your credentials I'd be surprised getting a rejection this early. But hopefully you will get more interviews then last year.

Got the Bergen rejection as well. Was expecting it, since Pipin's score are higher and received the same rejection. Wondering what is this program looking for

I am a US citizen, I doubt visa was the issue. In my case I am wondering if it was my attempt on Step 1. Or who know, they might just not be IMG friendly to begin with
