They might be rejecting it as you are an IMG ... my friend whose application is complete got her rejection from the same place for Anesthesia. So that must be their across the board standard.

That sucks, but if you look at their list of current pediatric residents...they don't have any IMG's in their program. So it's probably because of that, so don't let it get you down!

Default Dont worry

dont worry i think you are probably a good candidate you just a applied to a program that is not IMG friendly! if you check their website you will see that they dont have a single resident who studied outside the USA. It sucks but maybe you shouldnt have picked them in the first place. U will be fine. Best of lucks!

Its not your application, its where you applied. Look up the make up of that program. Regardless if you had CK results you weren't going to get an interview their sadly because its not IMG Friendly for Peds.

Georgia Regents Grads: 6 Graduates from their own school, clearly they recurit from within. The rest are from other American schools (remember PR is America) and then they filled the remaining spots with DO graduates. There was not a single FMG in the PGY-1 class.
