Go ahead man, apply. You will have to apply wider though. I mean, make your own list and apply to at least 100-120 programs. I would say, internal medicine, pediatrics or family medicine. Maybe you have other good things in your application, scores are not everything.

Default Low ck score,is my career over?

I am IMG and I have step1 score of 234, but step2 ck I rushed and studied for only 2 months and half..in fact took cs in the middle. so today I received my ck 198/pass. I am shocked and want to know if my career is over. or any thing left to do. I never expected this the exam was difficult for me..but never expected a score so low like this....by the way 1 day before taking the test I have taken NBME self assessment form 4 and my score was 232. That is when I decided to take the test...screwed...please Give me ur Genuine Ideas assuming I pass CS.

I don't know if you purchased the list from Matcharesident, but some programs, have reviews from people that got interviews from them, and you will see scores lower than that. Anyways, check the IMG forum. Your career in the US is not over!

Hi I am in a same boat with U and liek to hear advice about my situations specially if anyone has heard of similar cases?
Im an IMG, 12-yrs graduated, good research background and several paper from Yale university (one first-author and 4-coauthor , poster presentation in several conferences), 2 very strong LoRs from Yale university (one LoR very strong from my home country) and started my observership in Yale, Step-1=217, CS=first attempt passed...BUT! CK=75 (197) !!! I expected this results though... 3 times NBME-UW self assessment 230, sadly was ill on my CK exam day and wanted to leave in middle of exam but didn't know if if I have the right /will fail or not and asked the staff and they didn't know and couldn't get the information till the end of exam cession, after my exam cession I looked into USMLE website and realized I could leave and would have not failed so I wrote my request/complain to dismiss this exam because their staff didn't give me information (all reports from staff was documented about my situation on exam day) and they rejected my request....so now I'm screwed literally! Does anyone think I still might be able to get in Internal med, Family Med or Psych (these were my choices) if I get a good score in Step-3 and apply? I am applying for Green Card which most likely will get it in few months. Please let me know what you think of my chances for next year?

You should stop posting this question, you changed username and now you say you are from yale whereas the other username said it was from harvard, you also posted in another well known forum asking the same thing, this is the 5th time you ask this, why are you lying?
