Hey where from India do you belong??..Well buddy first things first..Derm residency(for that matter ROADS-Radio,ortho,anaesthesia,derm and surgery) are amongst the toughest to get into...If you look into the NRMP Match Statistics you can easily find it out...But yes nothing is impossible if you are ready to work REAL REAL hard...you must be a fesh Grad(within 2 years preferably),with Step scores above 260s and have USCEs(loads of them,may be 6 months and i am talking about hands on and not observership)..and plenty of good publications in Well known International journal and some research in USA too...GC may help a bit too...To be fair you are competeting for a residency which top 10% AMGs target and you must have to be the best in your country to give them a hard competetion...I haven't even heard of any IMG personally getting it,but a certain student from the topmost college in India did get into ortho residency and his YOG is 2009 and got matched in 2012...plenty of research experience,USCE and scores in 270s...got a peek in his FB profile and found out...The road ahead is tough and you know it too..but its not impossible too..Gud luck
