I was disappointed with my Step 1 score because my last NBME gave me a 247, and I hear about a lot of people getting scores in the late 40s or 50s.
With a score of 233 on step 1, do I have good chances of psychiatry matching? Especially since we hear everything gets more competitive every year...

Hey everyone!!! I have a few questions abt psychiatry:
1- i plan to apply for psychiatry as i have heard that its img friendly. But i dont have any experience of psychiatry or any LOR for it.
will i be able to get anything out of it still
2- is it very competitive, same as IM or FM?
In general I have seen that IMGs going for Internal Medicine apply to at least a 100 programs to be safe. How many would be sufficient for Psychiatry, assuming decent scores and a decent CV? I am thinking 60-70 programs.

My question is,

I'm planning to match in psychiatry in hopefully 2015. I want to get into a high tier residency, MGH for example. I have interests in global mental health and global psychiatry and plan to pursue a fellowship in global psychiatry after completion of residency.

Any information regarding any of these and related stuff will be highly appreciated.

Is it a good idea to apply to psychiatry as a backup to IM though I have no relevant experience in it? I only have USCE in IM and corresponding LoRs.
And is it easier to get into than family medicine?
