  hello every one , hope yall do great with this matching season .

I'll start with the good part
I graduated 1 year ago !, but here's the issue

step 1 score 211
CS - pass
CK - pending (all 1st attempt)

I have 2 months USCE and 3 LoRs in IM.
and i dont have a visa status .

ofc the problem now is I'll probably apply late this season (Oct) max cuz i need to boost my ck score , what are my chances of getting interviews this season with the above data , and what specialty i should aim for
( all in my mind i can do is the following )
psych
IM
peads
pathology

obviously i have to direct my CV towards 1 specialty but that incase i didnt get matched this year i'll boost it with step 3 and research hopefully . so lets talk about my chances this year in these three , IM , psych and peads.

what do you doctors recommend ? and thank you .

  Try to get the CK exam and apply for the match, because if you gain high score in the CK exam then you will be having chances of getting matched in IM. Also try to have continuous hands-on clinical experience in the IM specialty and try to get connections then your application be chances during the IVs.
