Info Any chances of matching without USCE or US LORs?

I am a 2011 Graduate, IMG, passed all on first attempt, 237 on Step 1 , 238 on Step 2CK and CS passed first in famous Philly.

Sadly no USCE or US LORs. Only waived LORs from my med school, EU Romanian Med School.

I've applied to 114 programs but only a few rejections until now.
Does anybody think that is possible to for someone in my "category" to match in IM or GS?

Default More difficult but doable

I'm on the same boat like you with slightly higher board scores. Applied to 70 IM categorical programs and got 6 interviews so far. So I think its not impossible. Even one of the interviewer praised one of the LoR from my country.

Keep your hope alive buddy!

Thank you ! Much appreciated.
Damn..good job... you are on the right path and I say good luck to you to. I'm sure you'll get into a good program.

I guess I've applied to a greater number of surgery programs which are a lot harder to crack and that's why I have no interwievs until now. Trying to keep my hopes up.
