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.

Tr-state is most competitive areas among IMGs. Nobody can tell your chances for sure. I would plan to apply there, but also cover the rest of the US. AT the end of the day your kids will be the ones ripping benefits of you having residency completed.
