HELP

Postby Sands » Thu Jan 17, 2008 11:11 am

Hello,

Let me start by giving my basic stats....I am an FMG graduated 2001.
Step 1 - 75 (passed on 4th attempt)
Step 2 CK - results pending (have failed it twice before)
Step 2 CS - passed on first attempt
US Clinical Experience - 3 months right now ( have 3 more months sceduled)
4 - LOR ( 2 from US docs who I worked with)

I am a US citizen. I have registered with ERAS and NRMP, but did not apply to any programs because I had not passed my step 2 CK. I am wondering if I should plan to scramble? (Hopefully I passed the CK this time.)

I am confused as to what I should be doing.

Can anyone advise?

There is nothing wrong with participating in the scramble with your credentials. Do not expect miracles, however.

Are my chances going to be better if I wait untill 2009 Match?

Well, I guess I have as much of a chance now as I will in 2009 (as long as I get my certification).

Ok....thank you for your responses.

One more question. What does imgresidency.com do for an applicant at my stage?
