Hii ginseng plus..
I really didnt mean any of those.
I was worried as my medical school seniors scared me saying i must get atleast 250 to even think abt IM residency program.
Just wanted to clarify from u guys.
I'm sorry if my post was offending!!

If you are normal and counscious doctor, you understand that this score is realy good, or very good. Next action is to take step 2 ck and cs... And of course you will be competititvely than others... Then good luck to you, and share experience with that who are in process.
Step 1 is a realy hard exam, passed yet them, and i'm happy...
Good luck to everyone...

Give the guy a break, he's not a US Med student and he probably doesn't know if his score is high or low for IM (Yes, International Graduates don't have much contact with this kind of things).

Instead of calling him an Idiot, just congratulate the man for his success, for god's sake...

Congatulations on your score doc19! I want to enter IM too... I'm jealous man.

Hi guys..so sorry for the delay.. I was hooked up with some work.. so couldn't get back here.

My preparation was 8-9 mths...I am an average student in my medical school... so my basics weren't very strong.. so I decided to start from the scratch.
I started with Kaplan LN and videos for each subject.
It took me 3 mths to complete my first read of Kaplan books.
As I finished each subject in Kaplan I would just have a glance at the same subject in FA and annoted some points which I felt were important.
Then I brought Uworld.. took 6 mths subscription.
I did it timed subject wise-2, blocks/ per day and annoted stuff into FA.
After my first round of Uworld my Overall correct percentage was 91%.
I was very happy so I decided to take a break.
But dis was the mistake i did.
My break lasted for almost a mth after which I thought I had forgotten most of the stuff.
So I sat back..did a second round of Uworld along with FA.
I gave UWSA after this.
My scores were UWSA1-251 UWSA2-250
I then planned to revise FA once again and give nbme's.
My nbme scores were as follows,
Nbme7:246
Nbme11-252
Nbme13-245(1 myth before exam)
Nbme16-241(2 days before exam)
I decided to practice giving an exam for 8 hours.
I gave Kaplan simulated 7 hr exam and scored 78%. This had many weird questions and was not of much use.
So my whole preparation was centered around Uworld and FA.

Lastly I would say that the real exam was nothing like out of the world....questions too were not soo lengthy...break time was just perfect and managable..Just BE CONFIDENT... I wish all of you good luck..may u all come out with much better scores than mine.

For Neuroanat I just did Kaplan and UW.
Micro Kaplan is too vast...I skipped the LN for dis..just read lippincotts micro cards+FA+UW which is more than enough!!...many micro questions are straight forward and easy!!

Its nice to see you get it done..249 is great...especially when a countryman gets it done I just get excited!!!

I read your experience but I personally think You either should make a new thread about your experience or put it in the first post...and make it a little more detailed...if possible...anyways BEST OF LUCK for all your future endeavors!

Congra
Good score
Many hospital requires above 230 for its residency
But also the less time between graduation and residency the more chance you have
So when did you graduate?

doc19 congratulations on your score.
Don't mind the haters that insult you. Your score is pretty good.
249 is just shy of 1 SD above mean. that means. That means that roughly 83% of fresh US test takers scored below you.
IM is definitely possible depending on your other scores and the program you are interested in.
