Something what I want...

My ultimate goal would be neurosurgery. Yeah, I know, I am just dreaming. That means that I really have to ace the steps. 232 was the score neurosurgery residents had avaraged in step1. That doesn't seem so bad. I want to have at least the first quartile (I don't know how much this is).

I don't know how much they will appreciate research work. I have done research work whole time I have been med school and my supervisor has been professor and chair in USA. (Hopefully this will do some good ). However he is not neursosurgeon (minus???)

I have decided to do USMLE now and finish my PhD. Then I try to apply some neurosurgical research and make some contacts and hopefully I will get my residency of choice.

Am I just dreaming? Should I have alternative goal?
Vigor is contagious; and whatever makes us either think or feel strongly adds to our power and enlarges our field of action.
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who overcomes his enemies; for the hardest victory is victory over self.
you are more than able to do this man!
Go for it. Don't let anything stop your ambition!

Any time I look at that beautiful butterfly and learn from it, my trust in God grows bigger. One might wonder where it could live in tempestuous nights, in the whirlwind, or in the stormy day? but I have noticed it is safe and dry under the broad leaf while rivers have been flooded and the mountain oaks torn up from their roots. When doors seem closed remember God is there to open them on your behalf. just be of good courage, cheer and confidence.

stay great man!!!

Sometimes, we need to recognize the reality.
Dreaming is a good thing but it should be within the scope of reality.
Well spoken, but I think the question is who defines reality?
We should all remember that any time one thinks about "reality" invariably it downplays
the mark set for oneself!
I think the truth is, what worked for somebody might not be the answer for another.
I believe the issue is more of oneself (individual). The sky is lower than the limit of him who dreams the biggest. He whosoever dreams to walk on the maximum scale of 100% can only end up on the best second offer if he does not land on the 100 than he who dreams less.
My friend (fin-84), don't kill your dreams go for it. You will share it with me in future that u made it!
