Hey guys count me in:
89 / 99 / CS 2nd attempt / 7 months USCE / 7 US LORs grin 2 from Neuro / need visa / No IVs!


how much of a factor does needing a visa play?

I applied to neuro and prelim IMs. no interviews.

99/99/pass 250s on both steps. canadian citizen. all rotations in the US. good lors.

rejected from indiana univ, univ of connecticut/hartford hospital - both neuro

also rejected from creighton prelim IM. but my friend got an invite from their categorical. his scores 92/83/pass. shes a US citizen.

what happens if u get rejected from a programs prelim and then apply to their cat? do they look at ur app again?

anyone know of people who got into neuro needing a visa? its scary already


Any replies from program directors??? getting really tense !!!


Nope...silent inbox...confused
