Com'on, an all 99'er. Just apply wide and you will get more interviews than you can handle. Aim at 60-70 programs.

Hi !

I'm an IMG with the following credentials:
Graduated 2005
step 1 211
and step 2 227
and step 2 CS passed ,
Passed all the exams on 1st attempt,
I have home country work experience (critical care unit 8 months)
I don't have USCE and I have home country LORs.
No research experience. No US LORS.
I'm trying hard to get some USCE but so far, the 15 hospitals i've applied to turned me down.

Could Dr. AnatolyK be kind enough to advice me on
1) Chances of IM residency in the tri-state area ( since my kid is in school in NJ) ?
2) Chances of IM residency in the rest of the country ?
3) How many programs would be advisable for me to apply to?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,
