  I matched in family medicine,Texas. Old graduates have better chances in family med,psychiatry and pathology.I know an old grad who matched in internal medicine as well.. It all depends on your profile, contacts and luck.
Sublimation-I waived all my letters. I believe waiving is better.

  @luckyone123...Thank you so much

- One more question. I did not get a single interview this year. I have work authorization for ever in USA not GC yet. Do you think Having GC during next match cycle will make a big difference.??

Thanks again for the guidance.

  GC also gives you work authorization..I am not sure how different it can be since you already have work authorization.

  In how many programs did you apply? Did you have any contacts in the program? if you are more than 5 years YOG and program has a cut off 5 YOG, so did you apply to those programs or not? about usce, did you have experience in clinic or hospital?
