heya there, this is my first post... I'm on the same boat rebel, Gen.Surg. 2011, IMG though not yet graduated.. almost done with boards and happy of that (CS in three days), doing surgical electives here in the U.S. Will try to spend a year hopefully doing clinical research or whatever to make myself known in a university or affiliated program.
All the best for you, we gonna make it, we keep in touch.

Looking at your history it seems to me that you got your spot after going a year of prelim surgery...

First, let me say wholeheartedly "CONGRATS"

Second, what advice could you give someone like me who is doing a PGY1 Prelim this year?

Same, I'm looking ahead for 2012 match.

Congrats on the categorical match!

Does Baylor sponsor J1 visa? What advice would you give to FMGs?
