Sorry to hear that, MM. UT is pretty harsh on visa requirements, so if you need a visa it's a big disadvantage. Anyway southern texas is not that pretty!




  #42

UTSW has no problems sponsoring J-1s, they have problems with h-1 only !!!


  #43

Yeah, but they are really harsh on on H1-b policy.


  #44

my USLoR are not uplaoded yet so I applied with letters from my home country.one of my letter writers is a recent alumnus of Methodist - I think this is what got me the Iv smiling face

Congrats again! You have many other right reasons to get this interview than just the alumnus letter. Amazing credentials, I think the pathology field is getting tougher than ever! Best luck!


  #48

Thanks Commit for your nice wishes, best of luck to you too smiling face


  #49

I received an Interview from UF Gainsvilles


  #50

University of Tenn Memphis smiling face


  #51

good going, ayyad.


  #52

It is so quiet these days. No IVs and no rejections. Does everyone's mail box like that?


  #53

No i don't need a visa, I have GC. but i never thought pathology would be that competitive. besides I have low scores and an attempt on step 2, so i guess it's going to be tough for me.


  #54

Congratulations those who are getting interviews nod Good luck for the match guys

Those who are still waiting be patient, you'll get some soon... my best wishes for you too.


  #55

I guess we took this discussion to another forum.... but I would say that IV season is going in a very decent way.... but it is still a long way!


  #56

Any feedback on University at Buffalo pathology program? Is it good?


  #57

has anyone received an interview from univ of Miami, Jackson Memorial Hospital?


  #58

U of Buffalo I guess it's decent..... I don't think is a great program but still a univ one.
