  I am old IMG with cs attempt..230 and 239 on steps with GC. I was looking for some USCE in hospitals, but somehow ended up in a university pathology department for observership. The chair of department is willing to write a LoR for me.. is this LOR will help me? since I am planning to apply for IM and Pads..

  its ok to get LORs from university, but PD look for externship experience those are very much useful with getting strong LORs

  I would certainly not discard it as being useless, he is a department chair in the end.
but i think you need to budget on what you have.. meaning.. do you have other 3 LoR from MD working in the specialities you are going to apply for? if yes, maybe the pathology one will not be your strong one. if not, make sure it's a good letter that highlights the qualities you can apply in IM or Peds as well
