    surgery is just tuff. i would apply to more programs, pronto. did you have a fair share of community programs, or did you apply just to university programs? what about east coast programs, and more IMG friendly places?

    you can land surgery with those scores, they are solid. but just make sure that the places you are applying to are sufficient and within your range. i would recommend applying to 10-20 programs that are "below" you, 50 programs that are at your level, and 10 programs that are a reach. but start upping those applications, it's expensive, but what's the price of waiting another year?

    Thank you guys.I will apply to some more programs but you're right, it is expensive.I really don't know if there are programs for surgery that are below me because I know that it is very competitive.Even im programs are these days.My medical school is foreign but I just graduated in 2005 and the hospital that I am now is an US hospital.
