Default Please clarify

I can't really understand your question.

Are you saying that you cannot apply to residency programs in New York if you have not yet graduated?

thx lee for ur reply ....undergraduate program as in like a BSC/BA degree ....in US or canada there is a rule to go to undergrad program n graduate or do atleast 3 yrs n then apply for medschools so i am asking abt that .....i heard in residency programs they look if the applicant has a BSC/BA degree or not.... n i heard if the person doesnt have undegrad degree there r less chances for that person to get into the residency program .....is it true ?....how exactly does not having a undegraduat degree makes difference from other IMG who has a bsc degree ???

I don't think that's true.

Thousands of IMGs get into residency without undergrad degree. The Middle East and Africa and Europe do not have undergrad system. They just go to med school right after high school.

There's no such thing as they won't be accepted into residencies.

The only thing is that in ERAS, there's a form that have to be filled for undergrad degree but they clearly mention that if you are an IMG and you don't have undergrad degree then leave that form blank.

No you have no problem with that
They don't care how you got into med school they just care that you are in med school and that's it
