my dismal USMLE scores

So I finally sucked it up and bought one of those books that apparently are supposed to help you find out what sort of residency you want to go into and how to get there.  Well, right there, right smack on page 94 entitled “Top 10 sure-fire ways NOT to get into residency”, the very first item was getting a USMLE score under 180.  I’m screwed.

One thought on “my dismal USMLE scores”

  1. No big deal, you can retake step one and try to improve your score. If you put up a competitive score the second time around, it can do nothing but help you. Otherwise you can do your best to crush step 2. Residencies like emergency medicine actually put more stock in step 2 scores than step 1 since it is clinical knowledge. Good luck and work hard.
