Applying without Step 2!

Many people apply without Step 2 Clinical Skills and Step 3 for residency. So you may not be an alien if you do so, but both are very very useful for application and u have to complete all the other USMLEs(except Step 3) before February...but u can apply to very few programs with only step 1 score...and thus less interview calls! So its always recommended to get all your USMLE scores out of the way!
 

number of residency seats

hi umar,

this is sofia from india.

you have done a great job in providing this much details to the FMG s 

i have graduated this year and planning to applying for match in 2013 . i want to know whether the increase in intake in US med schools affect the chances for FMG s for 2013 match or is it gonna come to picture later . am worried about my decision on USMLE. 

hope u would be able to help me out with this

Thanks for your kind words. It would somewhat affect but remember good candidates would always get residency spots.
