Listening Chance at IM at UMASS Memorial Hospital for IMG

Hey Guys,
I'm new to this forum but I was curious about how competitive it is to get an IM residency at UMASS memorial hospital. I attend AUA and I recently passed my USMLE step 1 with a score of 248/87. I dont think I will have any research by the time I apply, but I was wondering if any current residents of IM either at UMASS or other programs could give me an idea as to where I stand and what I could do to improve my chances. Excluding research though because a.) I have very little exposure to it and I can't imagine who would take me in and b.) its really hard to get clinical rotations at my school ( not talking down on it but there seems to be a wait) so I dont want to prolong that. Thanks for your help guys.
