I think you might be misinformed, Step 2 CK / CS can only be done by completing Core Rotations by AMGs (IM/Surgery/FM/Psyc etc.), some students opt to do research years / extended time inbetween rotations, so it can't necessarily be ''forced'' upon them.

As with many specialties, Step 2 Score is important, but Step 1 plays a ''filtering'' role in this selection process.

Better to be well informed than play on the likes of rumors!
