1991 graduate, GC, 95/99/passed all on 1st attempt, no serious research or
publication. PA-C with US MPAS and MS in CS, 5+ year Ortho experience in
China, 5+ year software engineering in US (if this count). One year of US
clerkship, 6 month of Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant experience. 5
LORs including a SLOR, all from US MDs.
Applied to 60+ university program in early Sep., however, almost no IVs.
Suspected some problems with a LOR in conjunction with my long graduation
year and no research and publication, reapplied to some community or
university-affiliated programs in middle Oct. without the LOR, got 6 IVs in
total and attended them all. Avoid one prematch, unrank a program even
though they sent me email saying I was ranked on their list, ranked the rest.

Richmond University Medical Center, Staten Island, NY
Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, NJ
Overlook Hospital, Summit, NJ
Capital Health System, Trenton, NJ
A couple of the programs told me "You are one of the other kind of Chinese
medical graduates. Usually, the Chinese candidates we get have a long list
of publications with PhD degree but no USCE. You are different."
