I'd say you have a 64.12% chance of matching. Best of luck!!:luck:

First of all you can't start residency this year since the match has already gone would have to be next year and secondly, what does it matter what we think? you're gonna apply this year anyways right? What is important is your entire package and how you present yourself to the programs. 6 years out of med school is a bit long but if you make them want you, then they will invite you for an interview. All the best. (FYI, i am sure you're making a lot more money as a RN that the residents in some programs right now)

Green card or not, thought you still needed the ECFMG and Step III done.

there's just no way to tell if you will cross that river until you have crossed that river. Green card is a plus, but I'm sure you know that already. Common filters are USMLE scores, ECFMG certification, visa. But basically any filter is possible from your last name to your country of origin. Good luck to you!

Those two things (ECFMG certification and Step 3) increase your chances of matching (especially at programs that use them as screening factors) but they are not required to match by the NRMP.

ECFMG certification is needed for ROL...at least that's what I've been told.
