Default retake step 1!!

Hello guys,

I am studying to retake my step 1 on dec 18, due to first failed attempt with score 185....It took me long to get over it and start studying. I am really working hard with (kaplan LN + videos and kaplan Q bank and then next month switch to FA X3 AND UWx2). I always wanted to do IM or neurology, but I guess I have to stop hoping for neurology. My question is If I get 230+ on second attempt and do 6-7 month research since im gonna apply for 2015 match ...Are there IM residency that will give me interview? Im US citizen went to AUA carribean med school.
Thanks guys or your time...
I really appreciate it..
Good luck to all!!

Yes. I think so. I think your chances are high if you plan on doing 7 months of research and if you do score 230+. I've seen how things are going for the match this year and last year and US citizens, GC holders that are fresh grads and that score 230+ are getting tons of IVs. You have an attempt, so apply broadly to mainly community programs and some with university affiliation. But you can definitely get in, especially with the research since it looks really really good in ones CV.

Good luck.
