  Hi there,

I'm a Canadian IMG. I didn't match this year. Applied to 300 programs based on matcharesident in FM/IM/TY/Prelim. Also nothing through SOAP. Got 2 IM and 2 TY/Prelim interviews. In all cases the PDs said it was due to Visa issues and Scores. I emailed programs through FRIEDA that are non-ERAS and/or non-NRMP.

Scores: Step 1 (211), Step 2 (209), CK (1 attempt), Step 3 (1 attempt).
I'm presently in a review course for Step 3.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

  Honestly, you did a great job getting 4 interviews with your profile. When did you graduate?

I'm a Canadian IMG as well and recently matched into an IM program through completing research in that program. If you are interested in doing research send me your CV. Make sure to highlight any research experience. The process will require a few interviews.
