    Hi all,

    Can anyone here please give me some advise regarding landing a Cat. spot in surgery for 2005.......I'm a US IMG w/ step I/step II scores of: 197/198 with a second take of step II, unfortunately I don't have any US clinical experiance nor do I have any LORs from the US. I did match this year into a FP program, however I really want to get into surgery. I know the possibility of doing a non-designated prelim year after doing a year of FP exists, but I'm already 31y/o and don't want to keep doing these 1yr spots before I can acutually get into a cat spot considering surgery is such a long residency anyway. I know as an FMG I'm already cursed and to add to it my low USMLE scores w/ a second take of step II will make it almost impossible to land a cat spot in surg, but is there anyone out here that can give me some realistic guidance as to how to go about getting into a cat surgery for 2005.
