Hi all I realize this has been discussed in a recent thread, but I would really appreciate an IMG specific perspective on this. I am applying for the 2016 match. My step 1 score is in the early 220s . I plan to spend the next year working as a research associate in neurology, and hopefully do better on my step 2. In your opinion, does matching in neurology in the U.S seem like a reasonable goal? Or should I focus on local programs? I'd also really appreciate some advice on what my application strategy should be if I apply. Thanks!!
