Default YOG explanation

Did internship for one yr in home country, then did a mandatory national service for another yr before coming to the US, am worried about needing a visa and from the NRMP 2013 data, US-IMG have a higher match rate than visa needing IMGs. My first love is radiology but i know its extremely competitive....thinking of applying for prelim first...btw which pre-lim is best for radiology, prelim surgery or IM?

You will unquestionably match in a very good institution, irrespective of your year of graduation which, in itself, is quite recent and the reason for the lag is justifiable. You should be very confident going into the Match.

Did your USCE consist of observership(s) or did they also include clinical electives?

Overall your application is strong. You should be confident in getting into a good program.

All the best!
