Arrow Building a competitive application with Low scores

Low step 1 score is certainly a tough hurdle to overcome. You can boost your application by doing an observership, submitting case reports to pubmed indexed journals and networking. Reach out to programs to find out if they have research opportunities. Most of the times, such opportunities are not advertised and they are unpaid position.
