Listening Little awareness for me

Hello guys!!!!

I just want you to know that I passed step 1 on my first attempt with score of 191. I am happy and at the same time I wished that I score more than 200. I am planning to take ck in 6-8 months. I already register for it and tomorrow (Tuesday) I shall get my ck books by mail. I need your advise because after all you guys are ahead and I am very happy for you.

I am deeply interested in IM so badly. With this score I feel little down. But at the same time I know that I can pick myself up and work harder. How can I make it? What do I need to do?


Just my stats: I am USA citizen. Went to Caribbean med school. Have Associates and Bachelors degrees.

Thanks guys!!!!

Hello Dr. Ali.

You were an inspiration to me on the Step 1 thread. I just came on here to tell you that...people are not purposely ignoring you, i just think because its the season where everyone is getting interview acceptance or rejections, most people are glued on those threads.

Take care and good luck.

I see I see. I didn't know about that. Alright, will wait. I guess that we should work on getting high score on ck. That should be a killer right there!

hey doctor ali.i have also recently gotten done with step1 with 198.so i fall into the same category. im not to sure what i want in residency but ive never had aims for the big subjects.something to do with sports - either sports medicine or sports psychology but thats for later to decide i guess.
now its only working our best for the other exams.
i have just started doing kaplan videos for ck.
so yeah i would like to hear what people ahead of us think about people with our scores too.

hello, doctor Ali. I too am sailing in the same boat. I scored 198 on step 1 USMLE. I am an IMG from india, and am deeply interested in psychiatry. i was pretty disappointed and discouraged after i received my score. some of the people on this forum gave me hope and courage, and advised to work very hard on ck, and get some usce. since you are a Caribbean grad, you have an edge over many of us. so dont be disheartened and just keep going. thats what i am gonna do!
