IMG 2010 graduate 90/213 in step 1 its not a good score i was hoping 95+, I don't know what will come in the future but still i feel i have the risk for not getting into residency, people say USCE, LORS, Research and stuffs?
what if i dont get them? what if i get them? should i continue to fight..suggestions plz..
Never mind if u feel that i had to stop it right here because i cant afford to fight still hard and land up on the losing side!!! Should I fight?

i think 90/213 is a very good score and you should continue.
you should not quit without doing and without knowing that u could have gotten it if u tried. what if u actually do get it
and i know some ppl who have been in the programs and they have scored much lower than you!
i am not saying that u will definitely get ur residency. i am jus saying you shouldn stop without even trying. you can get in to the program and later we can give examples of you who entered into the prog with this score. and your score is good. congrats!

If U dream it and belive in yourself............U will get it...............If not......than
u aren't going anywhere.........

and when someone asks.,.....should I continue....should I do this ,,,,,,should I do that,,,,,,,,,,,,,It means that don't belive in themselves........'


Belive in yourself........and go where u want to go.....u only get to live once.........

If I was in your place, I would have continue. I know my friends who got 80's and are still running for the shield. If they can why can't you??

Believe in yourself. Your number is good enough to get residency in US. So continue.

I hope that score is ok because I got the same exact score.

Listen, if you look at this forum everyday you'll feel like you'll never get a residency but the truth is.... There are doctors who have failed the board various times practicing medicine. I personally know someone who passed on their 4 try and he got his residency in internal med. He makes $200+/year. And no one cares what he got on the board. Believe in yourself and in your capabilities as a physician and the world will believe in you. Rock step 2 and I'm SURE you will get a residency...:cool:

God Bless!

I have to agree with Laura.
I love this forum and I learn a lot here, but there's people who think that only 99's get residency, and trust me that is so not true.
My in Law family is all about doctors, them, their friends, I'm surrounded by doctors everywhere I look. Is just sick:)):)):))
They have excellent jobs and their friends too.
Excellent doctors. Excellent salaries
And guess what??????
None of them got 99 on USMLE.

So just work hard for what you want. You have a great score and you just need to keep on with the dream. YOU CAN DO IT, GO FOR IT.:pHappy-2

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened

You have a decent score.Try to score 240+ in step2 and do a couple of electives:) GOOD luck:)

What I like!

I like this forum, because we all share the same dream and help one another to fulfill it. Whenever I am down I can post something here and immediately there will be people encouraging me not to give up. Thanks!
