for IMGs, i think almost none. IMGs need to have complete requirements for application to be considered..
step 1 & 2ck are required for interview consideration in majority of programs. you can check those programs who only require step1 but i think they are referring to AMGs for that.

I think you might have a shot, what are your stats?

If you've got borderline scores, then i'd hold off.

Anything average or above average on Step 1, go ahead apply.

Star Don't apply yet..

with a step1 score of 211, DON'T apply for the match until ur application is complete...otw, ull be wasting thousands of dollars only to get filtered out of every single program...
