Default FM Match 2017 Chances

Guys what are my chances 2017 FM

Step 1 - 240+ (2nd attempt)
Step 2ck - 240+ (1st attempt)
Step 2cs - (Pass 1st attempt)
Step 3 - (Plan to take)
2 years volunteer
6 months IM USCE hands on (1 IM LOR)
6 months FM USCE hands on (2 FM LOR)

Now I know this is crazy but I am applying to 400 programs to cast a wide net FM, IM, PEDS given the step 1 fail- mostly FM, approx 220 FM in total. What are my chances. Hoping to secure 7+ interviews.

If you are a citizen and you pass step 3 on the first attempt your chances for 7+ in family are good. I still think you will get 7+ given your 240+ scores and the large number of programs you are applying to but IM is an easier path given your scores & citizenship

Thanks Bully; I will look more into IM. Thing is not easy to get into IM with multiple attempts; not saying there arent programs that take people just you are limited.

Just make sure if you take Step 3, that you pass. The PD will not be worried about you passing Step 3 since your Step 1 and 2 are so high, but having a failed attempt will obviously hurt you. In my opinion, Step 3 will only hurt you if you fail, but passing won't really improve your chances necessarily.
