the reason this information is important to me is because although traditionally neuro has been friendly to IMGs and FMGs the number of foreign applicants has been very high and ecfmg has received a record number of applications.Was curious what effect this had on the neurology applicants and how successful they guess is this year was less successful.anyways guys ,any inputs?

I'm a FMG from a european med school (good grades, good references). I applied to 43 neuro programs and got 9-10 invitations. I managed to go to 7 of them. Some of the invitations came late in the season.

My advise would be apply to a lot of programs.
