    residency programs won't scrutinize your rotations unless they notice that you did them in a hospital that they know and consider to be disreputable - and getting a temporary license for residency isn't too difficult in most places

    although i'm not there yet, i never read anything that would hurt your chances of a residency because of the rotations you did. that only matters for licensing.

    It depends on the state.

    Some states will require you to get your own unrestricted license at some point within your residency. If you don't get a license for whatever reason, you would be booted out by that residency program before completion. Thats bad.

    Some programs might get a head start on your paperwork (which is the functional reason for IMGs being allowed to pre-match), and cut you before you even start residency, if they find out that you won't be able to complete it.
