You forgot to complete your profile;
Step 3:280
Phd pharmacology
Research director, nephrology research lab at Harvard.

How did you register with ecfmg for usmle if your medical school has no accreditation?
I will write to ecfmg to withdraw your certification.

OMG, Dorra, your profile is outstanding, you definitely have the best change an IMG can possibly get, you are an ultra-elite IMG, so you should give it a shot! I am not sure how many IMGs a year get into uro, I am sure it is << 50 per year but, hell, 271 step1 and research fellow + all this uro experience, GO FOR IT, DORRA!
