Hi vancomycingal!

Hard to predict the outcome of your application. Although you have some red flags in ur application (2 attempts in 2 steps), you are a US citizen with decent USCE and not an old grad. Why dont you try to find USCE at a major University Hospital so that u can get more valuable clinical experience and more respectful LORS? I would avoid LORS from Chief residents to be honest with you-it is up to you though...

A better score on Step 3 could also be helpful.

Best of luck!

PS: Do not get discouraged if someone tells u that u have no chance... No one knows your destiny.

Sorry I got confused; do u mean he was chief of the residents (chief resident) or that he was the division of oncology chief? cause there is a huge difference between those 2... Anyway in any case since u have worked close with him for such a long period of time he can give u a good/strong LOR.

PS: Make sure that u pass step 3 on 1st attempt. U have no room for more failures.

Good luck!

2 attempts with the score on the second try is still very low. I'd say your chances are bad
