Ok guys I've got my USMLE step 1 score and it's 99 and 238!
Is that a good score for an old IMG?
have a look here

My friends are telling me that I will not get a match even with such a high score because they never take 13 years old IMG after grad :confused::confused:

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! That is an awesome score ppl (like me) dream of! well done!

Secondly, just go ahead and apply for residency, it's fair game and even though you are an old graduate you have enough right as anyone to apply. This whole thing is a game of fortune.

I wish you the best of luck, and hope u rock step 2!

Thank you for the congrats

Everyday I realize there's no hope for old grads even with double 99 scores

CONGRATS!!! I can't even imagine a score like that... Be proud of what you've accomplished! Besides you never know, some hospitals look at old grads as people with more life experience.. so you never know how things will go unless you try :).

your amazing

you did absolutely well

dont let the negative poeple bring you down

you will nail step 2 and get a residency

dont forget, the poeple reading the applications, are ur age, wont they feel more connection during interview

dont get bogged odown by what peopel SAY

"whether you believe you can, or believe you cant

you are right"

Hi,

First off, congratulations superwild on the 99!!
I read this book by Jack Canfield and he says people around you will always try to bring you down to their level (not consciously but mostly because they haven't achieved Gold and don't want anyone else to do as well). As I see it your friends are probably jealous of your score (also again not on a conscious level because everyone is beautiful and nice) but its up to you where you wanna move from here. You can PUSH the door of success or miss out on what can change your entire life. We achieve what we want more than what we can because what we actually can do is what we want. So want a bright future not what your friend wants.:)

Do share your journey with us, I want a 99 too!! :)

I am delighted for you. I agree with the comment above about others dragging you down. It IS hard to be happy for others - jealousy gets in the way even when they might not be in the same competition. Ignore them with a smile on the outside and a smirk on the inside knowing they are incapable of sharing your joy. You will, God willing, get a residency where you want it. A 99!! Nothing and no one can taint THAT joy!
