Listening Do I have a chance?

Hello,

I completed MBBS in 1996. Worked till 2003 in India and then move to US. Stayed home for years. Recently, when I searched for information, it appeared, I do not stand a chance of getting into residency. I have no connections. Do I still have a chance?

Thanks

You lose the battle from the start when you withdrawl before engaging, look at the bright side:
1- you got experience thats a huge positive for Mid Tier and community based training sites.
2-add to it solid scores, strong LOR, and observship and you will be fine
