    Did not match first time, what're chances the second time?

    Making this thread for a friend of mine who didn't match this past year. Her stats are the following:


    S1: 210
    S2: 231
    CS: 1st attempt pass
    US Citizen
    Caribbean-IMG graduate
    No research
    No other red flags


    Told her to do something during the year off such as research and what not, but she isn't. Rather just sitting at home and waiting for September 15th of this year, again. The first time she applied she wasn't ECFMG certified. However, she is now.

    If nothing else, she could get a Missouri Assistant Physician license and maybe get a job there in a Primary Care setting. The added experience and potential good recommendations are certain to help.

    Cooking hamburgers? (RE: Online REVIEWS???); RE:

    “Not cooking hamburgers here (RE online reviews?)…????”
    RE:

    I do not know about you…but an IMG’s passage of the USMLE with a first attempt high score, for almost anyone with reasonable (1 year) US clinical experience, creates a 70-85% chance of matching in a primary care residency in the USA. Failure, will seriously reduce those numbers…We are not ‘looking for hot dogs or hamburgers here…, ‘ in order to get their (Amazon?) ratings. The people that write very unusual and unverified information on these fora, appear to not have any “idea what they are talking about...“ (‘blind leading the blind???...’).
    They also fail to realize that given the above-described importance of the USMLE, and clinical experience with good letters of recommendation, that these credentials are very likely (add Spanish speaking, and research, and grad degrees etc) to lead to jobs that will start at $130K, and escalate very quickly-with 4-5 years of practice experience- to $180-$240+k per annum in total compensation packages.
    In light of the above overall circumstance, I strongly advise you to view an IMG- friend’s (Now a PGY-V) ‘real story-‘ 187,387+ views-(FULL-BLOWN WORK-UP)- blog with the keywords’ search terms provided below (along with a topical index). GL and GB YOU..

    Well, if your friend simply sits at home and waits for the admission date, as you say, then there are no chances that she'll be admitted. If she does nothing, what can change compared to the first time when she failed? To match the residency, she needs to make research, learn the material well enough, try to retake the tests and do everything possible to get noticed. Her personal statement should also be a catchy one and some recommendation letters might help as well. Elsewise, she'll be left in the lurch.
