Listening Chances for Neurology Residency??

Hi, I am an IMG from India. I am planning to apply for Neurology this year. Can you help me explain what my situation is and what my chances are to make it.

Step 1 90/213
step 2 99/250
step CS pass
planning to finish step 3 before I apply
all on the first attempt
yog 2010
3 months of observerships out of which 2 months are in Neurology. Worked on a case report which will be submitted for a publication shortly. Worked on a retrospective study which will be submitted next month. I have 5 LORs in specific for Neurology and one from Heam-Onc.

Also please let me know what would be my chance to make it into IM, which is my second option. Thank you.

Help query

hey u have pretty good profile! best luck for the match! i wanted to ask how can one get 5 lors in 2months observership? i have impression that if i get 1 mnth usce i get 1 lor as i will be working under one particular faculty. So is it that one can work with more than one faculty at the same time?

I am asking because i am getting an opportunity for research and i just want to imrove my knowledge so that i can take good advantage of the opportunity!!

sanusmle...thank you the reply..according to what I think, the number of the LORs does not depend upon the duration for which you do a rotation but depends upon the number of doctors that you have followed and have interaction with...so it goes like this for example...you follow a doctor in the inpatient rounds in a week but you may even get a chance to follow some other doctor in the clinics the same week....I hope this helps..
