Just A query, i was hoping any of the members can give me their opinion? Say being ecfmg certified with both step 1 and Step 2 in the range of 230's and cs pass.. can an applicant apply even though his/her core rotations aren;t done except for a 5th sem clinical rotation. Suppose if this applicant clears the step 3 by the end of the year.. Do you think if there would be even a miniscule of chance that any program would take the applicant regardless of the fact that he hasn't done any clinicals except for IM and Family which he intends to only apply for? Also I have to mention he goes to a carribean school where he can only graduate if he finishes all the rotations they have listed. Consider this a no brainer or even a dumb question? But I was wondering would program directors ever gather that the applicant has sufficient clinical knowledge having passed the ck and cs with qualifying marks but with basic science completion and 5th sem and IM and Family Rotations? Thanks.. open to all your opinions and ramblings.. Thanks
