  Hi, I am currently a 3rd year internal medicine resident and will be a primary care physician in 2 months. A lot of people helped me during my match and i want to start this thread to share my match experience and answer questions if any.

YOG 2011; master program in home country 2011-2014; preparing for USMLE 2014 -2016, matched in 2016
step 1: 239; step 2: 247; CS 1st attempt; step 3: 220ish
applied to ~ 65 internal medicine program, received ~ 12 ish interviews (can't remember the exact number); cancelled a pre match interview, attended the rest; then matched
4 months observership in the US, 3 LOR from US MDs, visa needed

a few quick tips:
1, i filtered out top notch programs which i have no chance at and also programs that rarely take IMGs. so i was able to save some money
2, i filtered out programs that has strict limit on YOG and those do not sponsor visas
3, you can get good LORs from observerships too. try to be proactive and ask good questions during rounds. don't be afraid to ask for LORs you have nothing to lose.

Hope these are helpful! Let me know if you guys have any questions. I will try my best to answer.
