Default Any IMGs with CS FAIL Matched in 2014?

Hello ..

I am humbly requesting in this thread that if any IMG who had an attempt in CS or LOW SCORE/ATTEMPT in any other Step, did end up Matching, please share your match experience here and give advice to others who are in the same boat.

Plz tell how many IVs you got and what did you do to overcome your attempts/lowbscores.

Your suggestions would be really appreciated.


Thank you

I hate to see this growing trend among IMGs to just bluntly ask such personal information from other people. On a rotation when an IMG observer asked the 4th year AMG what his scores were...he said "My scores are....none of your business".

To answer your 2nd question, while I'll be on a visa, i don't need sponsorship from the program. And I have 2 years USCE.

If you look at my old posts, you'll find everything. I worked my behind off on rotations doing as many audition electives as possible at places I wanted to interview at. CS fail is hard to overcome and it affects the number of interviews. However, if you kill the interviews you do end up getting....you have nothing to worry about!

I have 2 years USCE, 3 publications, YOG 2014.

P.S. I know of CS attempters matching in Radiology this year too. So, nothing is "impossible".
