  You have a lot of red flags. It seems to me with the match rate for fmg lower than 50 percent and only getting worse your chances are slim. Since they have to weed out applications yours will probably be weeded out because of the red flags. Im not trying to discourage but if I were you I would consider all of my options first. The best shot you have is through connections in my honest opinion. If not its tough. Program coordinators have to choose between thousands of applications and having old YOG , attempts and low scores you might have trouble getting any IV without connections.

  I don't think going back to medical school will change your usmle scores. If you have attempts and your scores are low, I think they will remain the same right? someone pls correct me if I'm wrong

  Always have a plan B. I have it already. Getting residency is my biggest dream but is not the end of the world for me!

  You can't take the USMLEs again if you're already ECFMG certified, but you can go to a DO school and take the COMLEX.

  Oakramble, I didn't get to see the post, but maybe she's doing a chief year? Besides, a few IM programs are 4 years if I recall correctly.
