chance of matching with one interview

Postby memorei » Mon Nov 26, 2012 3:42 pm

I am an IMG from Germany and I applied to 30 IM programs for 2013 Match in states at east coast. By now I've just got one interview from pennsylvania. Can you please tell me if it is worth to go to this interview? If I ranked it on the top, would it be more likely to be matched there? I appreciate all quick answers.

Step 1 229
Step 2 CK 249
Step 2 CS passed at first attempt
2011 grad from med college
half a year clinical experience in my home country

Thank you very much!

No way one can estimate your chances. While there is some statistiocal data about interview counts and match outcome, it is very individual and greatly depends on your interview performance as well as ton of other factors that vary between programs.

Go for it. Even if you don't get it, expected benefits well outweigh the investment.
