You started the same thread on 1/15/2010 & I answered you there:
IMG + US citizen does it higher matching chances?

Default IMG/US citizen

Hi there, I am in the same situation as you. I am a US Citizen who graduated from a foreing medical school (Monterrey, Mexico). I went the long way since I attended college in Texas (got a Bachelors in Biology) and after that did some clinical research. I just graduated a few months ago and I am getting ready to prepare for the USMLE Step 1. Hopefully the chances of landing a residency spot will be better for an IMG/ US Citizen but I think the score we get is the one that's gonna make the difference. Good Luck and I will appreciate any advise or tips about USMLE study techniques.
