Hey! Actually, there are many applying. But probably less than those applying for IM and FM (that have their advantages).
The average Step 1 score for IMG applicants matching into Path is 226. You don't have to think in terms of minimum scores, but in terms of average scores. Generally, a score below 220 is not nearly competitive for the top patho programs. Then again, there are applicants with scores of 250s that don't always match, and then there are those with 220s that do. It's not all about the Step 1, but it's definitely important to be within certain limits.
