hello all,
I am an IMG..I have really low scores on step 1 and step 2.
I have 220 on step 1 and CK.
CS passed in first attempt.
205 in step 3.
I have no US clinical experience,just home country LORS.
I tried to find US experience but couldn't do so due to some family issues.
Are there any chances for me to secure an interview in family medicine or pediatrics,provided i apply in small community programs...
Should i apply with these credentials or would it be a waste of money??
Your help will be much appreciated.
thanks

thanks..
I checked this a few days back.
I wanted to know if somebody having a similar profile like me applied for residency and got it?
Any of your friends or acquaintances?

my senior with scores less than that matched for IM at a university program.

But he had 3 months of electives and around a year of research experience in the USA.

U will get interviews. U do have a chance. Not a big chance but you do have a chance. I would concentrate on securing some observership/externship rotations asap. To answer your question, there are some people who do have lower scores than you that earned residency in family medicine this past match. Apply and :plz:.

hey cheer up! I personally met someone with a step 1 of 210 who matched this year. She had a GC of course. But just saying you still have chances. try to strengthen your CV further by step 3, observerships etc and don't give up.

I agree what was previous said... try to get some last minute USCE!
And have faith, cause I've seen people with lower scores matching.
