did you even read the reports for the different scores for different specialties? Sounds like no. First Google and read them, then we will reply.

You can enhance your chances by:
- Scoring high in the CK
- Passing the CS from first attempt
- Passing Step 3 with good score
- Neurology specific US LoRs and USCE
- Neurology specific research and publications
- Great neurology-geared personal statement
- Appropriate ERAS application and targeted program selection
