  Guys please i need your advises..I was supposed to graduate in dec 2016 but i extended my internship,i got married and came to US.I am an IMG.Now i will be applying for degree in sep 2018 .will that affect my chances of matching?
How to cover up for that?Does program directors look for year of graduation or total duration?

  yes it will be having effect during match process, but you can explain that you have been preparing for USMLE steps and by gaining continuous hands-on clinical experience in US shows you are clinically active and gain lots of LORs which makes application strong

  If you have ok stats it shouldn’t. I delayed my graduation by a full year, was honest about it. Matched IMG.
