Question Will be filtered out?

A program has this on their website:
Minimum score 225 or above on USMLE Step 1 and 2 and passing score on CS. All must be passed on first attempt.

My scores are below 225 for both steps. Is it worth applying or will I get filtered out?

You will most likely be filtered out.

The only exception is that the program realizes that there isn't too many >225 applicants this year and they change their minds starts looking into lower scores, this event is unlikely.
