Default Confusion about the program criterias!

When I am searching for the programs, I saw that some of the program says their USMLE step1 & Step 2 Ck requirements are 90!
In the new two digit system very few people will get 90!
I knew that they will select only according to 3 digit scores!
Bcoz the applicants who gave the exam 1 year back they have 99 with 230!
but now even with 250 we dont have 90!!
how they will judje us!
I am confused!still now their criterias are according to old system!

You can't really trust the information on Residency program websites or even in Freida. Frankly, most of it is out of date or just plain wrong. Also, the score requirements are aspirational. A better guide to score requirements is something like 'Charting outcomes in the Match',

http://www.nrmp.org/data/chartingoutcomes2011.pdf

This will give you a bit of a better idea of the standards needed.
