USMLE Scores Step 2 CK Score & Match Averages by Specialty

fellas i think this is very important File.
We have to know the score to aim depending on our Specialty of choice. it's based on NRMP 2011 analysis by DIT. Found it on:

Good Luck !

My expected date is 12th Dec. I sent my credentials myself, and it was received on the 1st of December (Saturday). So I don't think they will release it this Wednesday. Cause it'll take ten working days as you'd told me. My status still says "Medical credentials received and verification pending". Ugh. Going to call them today and see if there's a ray of hope.
You've started the Step 2 prep already? Ah, great job man. I started with Gynae Kaplan. (I know I don't have the results yet lol, but I don't have much time for this exam so wanna start soon!) It's like I do a page of gynae/obs in one day. Just can't get my Step 1 focus again! Jeezeee.

Yes giving them a call isn't a bad idea. they said that 10days is maximum, but it's buisness days you know. i've got my result on Tuesday, as soon as they proceed you papers they'll send mail to you.

i couldn't do it i had to wait for result. i'll be done with cardiology tomorrow.

waiting for you thread about the score good luck

Thank you! Kudos to you for this wait. Such torment, this wait. I'll call them when it's 9 am in the US East coast, and ask the status of my credentials' verification. Want to get result soon. Yes, and congratulations on your score again! Are you managing both clinical rotations and CK together? That's what I'm going to be doing too!

Just spoke to the representative at ECFMG. She said "the verification of credentials has got nothing to do with the timing of your results." How strange is that?! It's happened to so many people recently, but I didn't say it to her. When I asked if I should be expecting my results this Wednesday then (that's the expected date), she said it takes max 4 to 6 weeks, but the credentials' verification has no relation to that. Isn't it weird?

you are missing the point. i had a problem with verification of my status, easy to say "was i still a student or not?". i did it while registration but they required it for second time from my school.

if that isn't you problem your result willn't get delayed!!!!!

Ohhh!!!! But so many people had this issue where their documents were still lying with the school and it never sent them. Like a couple of other threads too. Perhaps it's different for me cause I'm a graduate. Ah, maybe mine wouldn't get delayed then. So my result is on Wednesday then? Mini Heart attack time! *Gulp*

LOL!!!! That's QUITE a collection you've got there! You made sure you spent the 36 days with class! What's funny is that after your result got delayed, I thought maybe the score gets better if they delay it further!! Cause yours was good, LOL. I think I'll start this show called Suits. Or something very random. Jeee. I should stop getting nervous. Arrrity, will keep you updated buddy! Wow. You were right! This IS truly scary. Ciao!
