Default hey

wow. im not very experienced, but heres my two cents:

1) yes, i think you would. itd help if youre a recent graduate.
2) you might.. but the chances are very hard i think. most IMGs usually try to have completed all three steps by the time they apply.
3) easy if you have contacts who are willing to help you get a spot for experience. harder if you don't, but not impossible. ive heard of some programs that you can pay, but since i've not tried that route im not too familiar with it.
4) ive heard of people working as medical assistants or going to nursign school to become physician assistant.

p.s.-nothing great in life comes EASY. youve gotta work for whatever you want. i wish you good luck.
