this is my last post on this topic but honestly yea the the bar has been raised so much that now the standard is a 230 but with that being said you need to be a good human being now a days, people with a score of 260 are usually socially handicap from what I've seen and interviewers will catch that. they rather pick someone with a 220 who seems like he'd be a great team player over a 255 whose shows signs of being a narcissist in his interview... thus why people with high scores sometimes don't match. And don't get me wrong I'm not saying all people with high scores are robots

You have to go ahead and finish your steps. Finding residency is easy after little bit of research
