make sure you score above 240 or 250 in step 2 ck..as the average score for CK is 237 ..pass CS on first attempt and get good LOR's in medicine by doing 5-6 months of USCE atleast..also if possible, try to pass step 3 also with a good score..then you are good to go..good luck

You are on the right path. You passed step 1, and that in itself is an accomplishment!!

Focus on passing step 2cs and scoring high on step 2 ck, and all this combined will be an equation for success.

If you need anything please do not hesitate to pm me.
Best of luck and high regards,

Dr. Stavros
