    Surprised you are throwing in the towel. You just had the one year where you didn't match. You have good scores and had lots of interviews. I would totally be taking another shot. (coming from someone else who didn't match last year with similar scores 234 235, but had a late cs )

    Hi, I'm new to this forum. Applying for the IM 2017 Match. I was hoping we could start a list of interview invites/rejections and application acknowledgements, similar to the list seen on SDN, but for IMGs. I will start but I hope many follow. I tried to make a similar list on usmleforums but not many have responded yet.

    My credentials: 238/230/pass, all in 1st attempt; 2 months USCE; 1 abstract publication; US IMG; graduated this year
    I applied very broadly:

    Riverside Community Hospital (RCH), UC Riverside, School of Medicine’s (UCR-SOM) - interview ( invite received 9/19)

    Aurora Health Care Internal Medicine Residency Program - Acknowledgement

    Henry Ford Allegiance Health - Acknowledgement

    Internal Medicine at USF Health - Acknowledgement

    UCLA-Olive View Internal Medicine Program - Acknowledgement

    PinnacleHealth Hospitals Internal Medicine Residency Program - Acknowledgement

    Iowa Medical Education Collaborative - Acknowledgement

    University of Washington Boise -Acknowledgement

    Gunderson Lutheran medical foundation - Acknowledgement

    No rejections.

    I promise myself that I would reapply if I didn't get a job within 3 months of not matching that pays well enough to qualify for student loan forgiveness. I took out the maximum at SGU, so my student loans is around 450k. Compound interest with that in 10 years will be a MILLION DOLLARS.

    My job with the government makes it so after 10 years of paying 10% of my AGI I get everything forgiven tax FREE. So if I divide a million dollars by 10 years...... I am technically making extra 100k a year TAX FREE by working for the government. The 10% of AGI is based off of income after PRE-TAX investments, which includes my contribution to pension. So I am paying like around $150-$200 a month for 10 years only. Did I mention that if I retire at 62, I get around 80% of my salary TILL I die with free health insurance, plus long term care insurance?

    Boss already submitting in paper work in attempts to get me promoted. So did the math. My cushy analyst job beats being a FM doctor working 60-80 hours a week, while hospital administrators tell me how to do my job. 8AM-5PM everyday baby with 1 hour lunches.

    Seems like you thought about this decision and made a good one. Congrats - enjoy a better life!
