Star Research versus everything else...

OK heads up, guys!

1. Not every IMG did the research paper shindig while in med fact for old IMGS it was not even trending....(the fact about research being an extremely important part)
2. Not every IMG decided to go for the USMLE as soon as he got his authority letter for medical school...
3. Research outside of medical schools is not possible ... so like me ONCE you leave ... zilch chances of doing CREDIBLE MEDICAL RESEARCH...
4. Well so what's my point?
---Every CV is unique, but at the end of the day we are looking at a completed CV ...and their are a lot of people who still say that "Research" will be a cornerstone of this CV structure. (Its a CV which will describe us to the program)
5. So no research ...two forks lie ahead:
1.1 Fulfill somehow in home country: then HOW?
1.2 No research citations but good USCE...WHAT are the ODDS?(of course good usmle scores)

So there you are ...what are the odds without this "cornerstone"...
Forgotten war forget ten soldiers but one got away!
