Hi!

I passed step 1, 2 & CS at the first attempts, but I passed step 3 at the second time.
In my case, is it worse to pass step 3 at the second attempt than not to take step 3 at all?
I thought so because I heard that programs set a filter on the number of attempts.
In fact, I got no interview this time although I passed all steps and have a green card.

Do you have any idea?

I'd say that not attempting Step 3 is better than passing it in the second time because that would create some uncertainty in the minds of program directors.

Anyway, that has been done and you can't change it right now.

I suggest you do USCE and good LoRs and make connections to boost your chances for the next season.
