USMLE Scores Program criteria; minimum USMLE scores!

most programs outline a criteria about marks..for example many programs say that 85 is the minimum requirement .please tell me does this mean 85 on both steps or they may see an aggregate of 85?/suppose if one student has 90 in one step and 80 on other.so he may have average of 85...plz clarify

Hi
Theoritically speaking it means both steps. Practicaly speaking it can mean step 1 as many people I guide get interviews in such programs with only step 1 result in hand and do match to such programs even with lower step 2ck which results comes later during the match. Some factors may cover your lower other score such as Citizenship/GC, extensive USCE......
