Default Passed 209/87 experience

Hi just got my score i know compare to others here its not that high but, im happy that i passed, i was wondering if i can get a pathology program with this score....

anyway im a filipino (IMG) graduated 2009, i think that counts as an old graduate, anyway for my study plan:

Physiology: Costanzo
Microbio: Micro made ridiculously simple
Pathology: Golijan
the rest kaplan LN

i had 7-8 months preps including the downtimes family problems, depression burn outs...
USMLE world avg 56%
did not have the time to take the USWA
took 1 nbme got a 85 3 days before the exam

i was at my last extension so had a lot of time constraints

anyway exam experience, my 1st block was super horrible, i think 50% were hard questions, my weakness as shown in the test results were genetics and hematology esp the new curiculum, of immunology so study hard that part....

i would say that 50% of the exam questions can be DERIVED from UWorld, please note derived not word for word. so you still have to know why but seriously 50% is a big deal, im not a smart student, dont have a lot of good study habits, im just one of those medical students who survives....

anyway hope you guys do way better than me... learn from my mistakes,

oh and thank you for all the people that helped me through this day, see you at USMLE-forums step 2
