Default Is 250 the new 230 for IMGs?

I was wondering if 250 is still considered a worthy score on step 1 for IMGs aiming for IM /neurology ?? I recently have heard people saying 250 is the average for IMGs now ? Any information is appreciated

I have also heard the same thing about this with many people that have applied.
Anyone?

Did you took all your exams yet? Again this is a really interesting topic not many people in the forum talks about.
Of course as probably you agree with, you want to be on the higher side of it than on the low side of it.

The scores needed for IMGs are getting higher each year :/ I think it largely depends on the specialty tho!

Most of my seniors advise that only if you were a mediocre student in medical school, and you CV isn't that impressive, either score 240+ or don't try at all.
