Hey people!

This is the story - Step 1 score in the 70s and step 2 score in the early 80s (both 1st attempts), am a U.S. Permenent resident, FMG from India - finished med school 2 years back, have done observership/research work in the US, have good letters of recommendation. HAVE TO, HAVE TO get into an Int Medicine residency program in 2003........preferably in the NY, NJ, PA area. Qs are:

a) What are my chances of getting in?
b) Which are good places to apply for a person with my background?
c) What have been the trends over the past year or two regarding FMGs getting into residency programs?

Any help will be highly appreciated...Thank you!

I know there's one at Our Lady of Mercy Medical Center in the Bronx (NYC) which takes lots of Indian FMGs. It's affiliated with New York Medical College and the director's name is Dr. Pitchumani (I believe). Good luck!
