    Big... But I read about IMGS that don't match with those scores due to no US LORS or experience. So it isn't the end all be all

    A big misconception among IMG/FMG with regards to attaining a US residency is that ultra high board scores would guarantee matching. There are no guarantees as an IMG/FMG. Sure a high board score increases your chances of receiving an interview invite but it doesn't do much for your in terms of ranking on the ROL. How well your interviews went, your personal statement and your connections within the program have a much profound impact on your ranking. Most IMG/FMGs make the mistake of focusing only on the USMLEs and neglect the other critical components.

    my advanced classmates have told me that one needs US clinical experience and strong LORs. externships and observerships help greatly!!
