Default To take or not to take?

Would you take the step 2 CK if your score is 206? They just recently raised the minimum to 209. Before July, the minimum was 203.

which assessment was that... uworld? or NBME (if so which one, and online or offline).

P.S. I wouldn't sit for that exam. It's too big of a risk.

Don't sit for the exam unless you can get >220 in NBME, UWSA.

The only NBME in my point of view that u can afford to get lower than 210 is NBME 7 :S, in all the rest you should at least get 220!
