Default Worried I failed Step 2 CS

I took Step 2 CS about a month ago and I have been filled with dread since that day. I don't think things went well for me at all. I closed all my cases and finished all my notes...but my closings felt kind of vague and lame a lot of we are gonna do blood work to look for general issues (CBC and CMP's) and take an X-ray/MRI of body part that hurts. I also cannot recall for the life of me if I washed my hands I can remember doing it clearly a few times, but others I just cannot recall. I know I missed a few counseling things and I feel like my physical exams were not enough...

In case this matters I am an AMG with a 226 step 1 and a 243 step 2 CK hoping to go in psychiatry. I am just living in hell waiting and I feel like if I don't talk to someone I am gonna fall to pieces. Did anyone else feel this way and it turn out okay?

Even if you felt like you did everything right you would still feel like this Im sure. I'm sure you didnt do perfect but I think you most likely were efficient in general.

I was convinced I did enough to pass but I felt terrible for almost 3 months.

Also I one case where I never touched the patient and on the notes was only able to place PE on the workup together with the labs imaging.

Some of my interviews were scheduled after my CS result so that added to the stress.

Thanks for all the words of encouragement. The waiting in med school is a personal pan sized hell. In only 7 days for better or for worse I will have my answers...and so will about 1,000 other people waiting along with me.

Default cs result in 5 days

i m an img gave cs in nov in LA. Felt fine after the exam but now that i recall stuff i can only remember what all i missed .
things i missed:
Forgot asking for steroids in a young female with an ankle fracture.
Forgot to check signs of dehydration in a case of diarrhea and unsure about diagnosis in 2 cases.
a pt asked me twice what my q was.

i m so nervous ryt now!! i have been oversleeping to avoid the feeling.
failing cs would have such a negative impact on my application!!
this is my first step !!and i think it would shake my confidence if i failed!!
Is someone on the same boat ??

First time ever I see the American Medical Graduate in this forum - by some reason I always thought they all get above 250 and never worry about CS, as they say, "it is too hard to fail this exam" ...

Hands crossed guys - less than 48 hours left to report.
God almighty - I'm praying to all of us...

Took exam on December 29 - 2015 in LA ...

Default step2 cs

I took the exam on november, and I'm waiting for the score report too...
My physical exams were really lame and I just did the auscultation parts well I think, the rest was really bad...
Dunno if it's going to be ok.

btw, will we receive an e-mail with the results? or will we have to check the website directly ?

I think it will be like all the other tests and we have to follow the stupid link and try not to have a STEMI in the process...then again I am totally guessing it could be you open an email and the computer starts mockingly screaming profanities at you. I am torn between passing out and quitting medical school at this point!

I'm in the same boat guys. Im an IMG and gave my cs recently. Cant even recall what I spoke to the patients during closure. I did not counsel 10 patients. I'm worried about my physical exam as well. My closures were very vague and I'm afraid that they would flunk me. I skipped saying, 'sorry to hear that' after hearing patients' chief complaint, which most people call this empathy: should I be worried about this?? The whole performance is freaking me out..

This is the longest wait for me in my whole life.
I was very satisfied after the exam, but i dont know why i have this strange feeling.
Very scared right now , woke up early in the morning and waiting and refreshing the mail and oasis page.
Please god have some mercy and shine some positivity on us.
Good luck all and please report if someone got the result.

My scores are in and I passed!!! I am so excited that this is finally over. I actually did pretty well except strangely on CIS (I was on the borderline on that). Which I found totally strange I have always gotten good feedback on my rapport. I guess I am a bad actor.

Hopefully other happy news to come on this thread!
