USMLE Scores 3 Years Old USMLE Scores!

Is it better for u to take your steps just before u join the match or it doesn't matter to take it 3 years before or some thing like that?

but you spent these 3 years doing overseas residency in the same speciality ?

It does not matter how old are your scores as long as they are valid (7 years).

But let me ask you, why do you want to postpone your application after finishing the steps!

Your overseas rotation won't help much, in fact, it might have negative impact, as residency programs prefer fresh graduates.
