Default good

Hi SIpka,

212 is not bad. With good letters of rec. you should be good.

BTW, how did you prepare for the exam?

I only studied for 2 months, average 6 hrs a day, what more can a mum of 2 do ha .... just did Kaplan once and USMLE World twice .... all the best to you...
i have my fingers crossed and going for the next steps but i am not sure whether my score of 79 might just prevent from applying to most programs ...

Default 2 digit score

Do not worry about the 2 digit score. PD's looks for 3 digit scores & not at 2..
So carry on with the good work..

Did you take any NBME's. Did the score corelate perfectly?

Thanks

ya its a good score, don't worry about it. I know plenty of people with that score getting residencies. One of my really good friends got the same score, she's currently an IM resident.
