Probability Chances of matching in 2014.

Hello,

I am an IMG with step 1 and step 2 CK and CS completed. I need no sponsorship.

Step 1 score : 216 + an attempt
Step 2 CK : 239
Step 2 CS : passed.

What are my chances of matching for IM this year. Please suggest any medical schools or hospitals that i can apply for.

Thank You.

your chances are from 0 to 100% , the attempt will hurt you very much, the lack of USCE will hurt you more.
I say low chances

Ok your chance increases, but again, no one can be sure, apply , have faith and you are good. But be ready for anything.

If we rank hospitals into A's, B's, C's and D's, just make sure you also apply to C's and D's. You'll know which hospitals they are by asking friends or relatives about hospitals in your state. You still have a chance at matching esp since you don't need visa sponsorship. Just be realistic about it.
