I graduated in 2007, no Iv 3 rejections and 2 acknoledgements, I am also thinking i will have to apply next year, get more experience and pass step 3 with better score:(
What specialties do you apply to? Your profiles are not bad at all for IM or FM. I have not got any IV, either and it is understandable with my credentials :eek: But let's keep our spirit up! :)

I applied to IM and FM total of 90 something, and some of pediatrics and pathology just cause somebody told me i might have a chance there.... but altoghether applied to 111 diferent programs, i have an understanding that YOG is REALLY BAD, and average scores don't help me that much, so i might need more experience, i think your PHD gives you and edge too. did you have rejections yet?

2nd IV - JFK new jersey

Finally after a long list of rejections, I received today at around 4:30 pm EST my 2nd IV. It's an FM program at JFK Medical Center in Edison, NJ.Happy-2

My first IV was a peds program at Mt Sinai in Chicago which I received on first wk of October.

There is indeed still hope for old IMGs like me with low step 1 score.:)

My excellent academic records and US LOR are probably helping out negate my low step 1 score and old IMG status.:)
