  Only US grads - exclusively. I know a lot of US grads that would rather wait another year than do prelim in a community hospital. Does this apply to comm hospitals too?

  what i know is..........that one does get H1 visa in prelim year which is exxxxxxxxxtremely competitive but yes IMGs do get it and it is difficult to change your visa status after a prelim year in J1 to H1. so if in case u want an H1 visa later try not getting into a J1 prelim program. i hope this is what u wantes to ask.

  I got an interview in prelim. But I am looking for J1 anyways. So, I don't know what are the chances of conversion?
