Hi all. I'm a student at St. George's Uni (based in Grenada, clinicals in US), and I am applying for peds. These are the places I got interview requests at with a 76 step 1 score (without releasing step 2 score):

St. Joseph's Medical Center - Paterson, NJ
Newark Beth Israel - Newark, NJ
UMDNJ/Robert Wood Johnson, Camden Campus - Camden, NJ
Morristown Memorial Hospital - Morristown, NJ
Flushing Hospital - Flushing, NY
UMDNJ/Robert Wood Johnson Medical School - New Brunswick, NJ
Uni of Tennessee at Chattanooga - Chattanooga, TN
Memorial Health Uni Medical Center - Savannah, GA
Wright State University - Dayton, OH

That's a total of 9 interview requests. I also got 16 rejections. I applied to a total of 55 programs. So for all you out there who are in doubt even though you have scores near perfect, STOP WORRYING! smiling face You will do fine, I'm sure. Take care!

1. IMG

3. 1998

4. 80/82/passed

5. USCE: observership in Pediatric (sept 2007 - present) / US LORS: 1

6. Number of places applied: 33 (apply in the last week of October)

7. Places interviewed (2): Creighton/UNMC & Elmhurst NY

8. None

9. Matched at Creighton/UNMC Pediatrics on J1 (#1 choice).
Update: Got H1, instead of J1 since I passed my step 3 and the program was kind enough to wait for my step 3 result long after the match process and to accomodate my wish for an H1 visa.
