Default Don't worry...

Simply put -for 4 more years OBAMACARE has created another 2000-4000 slots! and you are in demand--so you can make up for it if you interview well...and you follow the tips that I'll suggest to you on a private case-by-case basis (see below) i..e, --RE-BOOT NOW!

Yes just a few years back I had several failures and no USCE and no hope!...( now in 4th yr (chief rez) IM...)just email me direct (enycity at g mail; put "residency advice needed" into the subject header) for more tips including step 3 for upgrade (i've got some good sources to get you there) and --basically that you have to fit into the system as it stands now--e.g., get USCE, and make contacts and fill out beautiful ERAS Cvs and personal statements..GL for the next match--YOU CAN DO IT too...!

I got 208 on Step 1 and I matched this year. Don't get yourself down by your score. Look forward and give your best in other areas.
