Default Apply vs. Non-Apply MATCH 2015

Hi there,

I am an IMG with YOG 2010. Scores Step 1>250, CS passed first attempt and multiple LORs. I have a year of research experience at a Harvard affiliated hospital.

I plan to take 2-CK in October after submitting the application.

Should I apply next year or this year as I take CK in October and the result is updated and sent to the programs.

Any comment/advice helps.

Thanks!!!!

you have an amazing step1 score as well as good background.
Unless you are crazy about research, I would say give it a try for this match.. Nothing to lose.
You don't need to waste 1 more year with tiny unvisible molecules if your goal is being a clinician.

dont apply its better not are u serious ?? beside your step 1 score , your YOG is almost going to be a red flag for you, your within the 4 - 5 years postgrad with that your becoming undesirable for many programs .


Btw what field are u aiming for?
