Default Chance for Electives?

Hello everyone!

I'm an IMG from the Philippines and I just want to know what my chances are in getting accepted for electives with a USMLE score of 232. I'm currently applying at Mayo and I haven't seen any information online regarding the scores of those who got accepted. I'm a little uneasy with my score since the mean score increases every year! I heard it's now 230!

Any inputs? Thanks you very much!

No one answers here most of the time, I asked many questions but received no answers. I have no idea about your question to answer. Sorry

Your step 1 does not matter a lot as much as your experience and a good resume especially for electives. From what I know, step 1 is just another requirement and looking at step 1 score for electives is probably overkill
