  Some places interview until the end of January but if you haven't heard back by now it's unlikely anything will change. Family medicine got a lot more competitive recently, as did Psych. If you have the scores (and the interest), I heard applying IM is a good choice for IMGs, comparing to other specialties. Definitely try applying to more places next time--it's expensive but a necessary sacrifice. Good luck!
