Question How to Find suitable programs

Hi all, I'm an IMG , step 1 241 , step 2 241, passed CS first attempt. no step 3 , 3 months observership , 3 US LORs , no research , YOG 2009. intent to apply for IM , need visa.

I can value my application as average, i have good scores but no hands on experience. and no research, so i need to find the programs that can suit my credentials. i'm really nervous about this coz due to financial issues i might not be about to apply for more the 140 programs. and coz of the same financial issues this match is my final shot so i need to maximize my chances as much as i can.

U can go through ERAS, check each program website & see their requirements, its long & hard process but at least its free, u can save money rather than using other websites to provide lists of programs that match ur criteria.
