Star What is my chance of getting accepted in Radiology?

Hi,

with the following scores, what do you think my chance would be to be accepted in Radiology in Southern California?

Step 1 --- 256
Step 2 --- 267

I will take my CS exam in about 2 weeks.

Please share your thoughts.

Thanks

They are good scores to go through the first filer of USMLES-which is the most important but the only factor. You SHOULD have plenty of research and letters from electives. The last point, everybody says USCE, which is a very broad and not accurate. Doing an elective at a great university and getting a great letter >>>>>>>>>>>>> than just do it a mid/low tier university and get a normal letter. While IMG people count both of them as 1 month elective, there is a HUGE difference!

many of my friends with scores less than this got matched to radiology this year. almost 11 people I know from Iran [graduated] got radiology this year.
2 people last year.

You need to do the leg work your self, no one will tell you what program, where, how.

You have a good solid chance for radiology take it.
