Embarrassed Is this 3 or 4 years since graduation ?

Dear Doctors ,

I have graduated in June 2011 , if I want to apply for 2015 Match , (this will be in September 2014), by that time I will be considered as 3 or 4 years since graduation ?

In september 2014 it will be exactly 3.3 years since graduation so it will be rounded to 4 ?

And assuming it's 4 years since graduation , as an IMG is it possible to be matched in OBGYN program ?

Please any help is appreciated ..

There is no hard rule about this. Even residency programs which mention a cut-off date in their website may not be very strict about it.

Yes. Will rounded off to 4 years but that's not a big difference from 3 years.

You being an IMG with 4 years since graduation looking for obgyn residency, you'd still have chances. There are several other factors of course, such as the landscape of residency at 2015 (percent of IMGs at that year), your USMLE scores, your US LoRs, your USCE, connections, research, publications, ...etc

PS- check the ObGyn-Matching tag link at the bottom of thread to understand your chances more.
