Question Program Score Requirement in FREIDA!

Friends !
I have a question !
I am searching on freida for the programs and in the part of :

USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 requirements for interview consideration

CASE 1 :
For example , in a x program they require 220 in the step 1 and no answer in the step 2 ck

so what about if my score in step 1 is 219 and my score is 230 in step 2 ck . Can I apply for that program or is no advisable to do that since I will be out due to program's filter ?

CASE 2:

What about if they require in step 1 219 and 230 in step 2 ck
And my score is 219 in step 1 and 230 in step 2 ck
so here in this example I have the minimum requirement but do you think that if I apply to that program I will be considered for an interview ?

Thanks in advance

Score requirements is not really very strict and stringent. I would come to a situation where you ask yourself "Should I apply or Not?" then the answer is invariably Yes apply.

Having said so, there's a very high chance that your application will be rejected automatically if your score is off the threshold, but there's tiny chance it will not and we don't want to lose even the slightest chances.

I would also recommend follow up with the program coordinator, call her, email her, show your enthusiasm and interest, you never know, it might click.

Sabio,

I thought those scores published by FRIEDA were intended for AMG's (since most programs have different scoring requirements for IMG's), since they matched what the scores needed for AMG's were on many of the program websites I checked?

Are they differentiating?
