  Hi, I'm an IMG with the following credentials: 226/244/CS-Pass/223 all first attempt and yog 2017 and I require a visa preferably H1B. I have 2 US lors in Path and research publications. I'd really appreciate it if somebody could tell me the minimum number of programs I may need to apply to so that I get at least a few interviews this season. Thanks!

  You have good chances of getting matched but you need to have hands-on clinical experience in the same specialty and can get strong LORs. You need to apply more than 150 programs where you may be getting more IVs for the match.

  Thanks @kavya@4a1! I do have hands-on clinical experience and 2 strong LoRs from the US that are speciality-specific. There aren't as many positions in pathology as there are say for internal medicine which is why I am worried about getting interviews..
