6 months research experience
Looking for IM, FM, Ped and Translational Year Programs..suggest if any of your friends got in with above scores and let me know if i get any interviews..

Can anyone advice what should i do to overcome CS failure..I know most programs won't look application with 2nd attempt in CS..Also I see some programs mentioning "First attempt in USMLE/STEPS"..what is it means?..will that include CS too or will they consider CS separately?


Thanks so much for your help..

he is not being discouraging , he is being realistic. Step 2 Ck is all about clinical knowledge and his CK knowledge is below average. Average is 237 , this person got 215. Failing step 2 CS is bad.

I suggest that you boost up ur CV with research and USCE. Make contacts so you can pass filters.

I do not plan to discourage, you should apply I wrote. I'm not sure if you understand what does it means to fail 2 CS? It is worst that to fail step 1 or step 2 ck. This is the most important exam for IMGs.

Do not ask option on forum if you can not take onset critique, this is also suggesting something for me...
