I am applying for psychiatry, the problem people sometimes underestimate psychiatry very much its true they dont weight much on scores, but they focus on USCE on hand, and they lack confident in IMG for language reasons, passing step 3 etc.. the point I want to make is psychiatry is a different world some programs value your personal statement more than your step 1 score making it unpredictable, good luck
