  i am an img got 86 on my step one 1st attempt , and i recieved my step 2ck score with failed 74/183 i am realy depressed and want to know the impact of this failure on my chances , how much are my chances reduced ? , many people told me that failing was better than to get low score is that true ?
i heard about many people who failed cs and still get matched in great places and also i have been told that failing cs is much worse than failing step one or to ck.
please any one can help me with experience in that issue , just tell me what to do , i will prepare so hard for retaking the exam but i want to know how much getting 90s can improve the sitiuation .

  Failing in step 1 or 2 is worse than failing in step2cs and secondly when you are retaking step2 try to get more than 95 to improve ur chances...gud luck.

  just organise ur study plan and focus on the exam.......kaplan study material is a good starting point ,and then solve q's( usmle world is really good in my opinion) ,take NBME ( 2 of the tests if u have the time if not atleast one) , get ur confidence level high and go for it! u have the knowledge already , just relax and apply it well.......u can do it! all the best!!!!! cheers

  Sorry to say this but you have it all backwards.
1)- Is much better to pass with a low score in the first attempt than a second attempt
2)- CS is the less important exam, in fact most of the programs look for no attempts in the step 1 and step 2 ck, only a few mention no attempts in CS. (although failing the cs matters it doesn't matter as much as the step 1 or ck...a pd told me that because i failed the cs once)

I'm not trying to be mean but your chances are much much lower now, if you decide to go to the 2010 match I would advise you to study hard an score +95 in step 2 ck, score +95 in step 3 and get some USCE with strong US LORs or contacts.

Good luck

  I failed in my first attempt of Step 2CK. I studied so hard and I got a 99 in my second attempt. I did observership in IM and I got matched in IM this year. So it really all depends on you. Focus first in passing the Step 2 CK exam and if possible, try to get a very good score.

YOU POSTED THIS BELOW - CAN BE VERIFIED THROUGH google:
so you worked for a 'gang of thieves' last year perpetuated by renu_usmle etc? But you are now stating above that no company ever existed- NOT EVEN THE ONE THAT IS TOP RANKED BY THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU?

(THIS PROVES that emc2 - YOU ARE A SICK, SCHIZOPHRENIC MAN/WOMAN THAT NEEDS SERIOUS 5 HT1-A receptor MODIFICATION WITH CLOZAPINE AS CHLOPROMAZINE WAS OBVIOUSLY NOT SUFFICIENT TO NORMALIZE YOUR DA2 receptor hyperactivity) :

Yes i was part of this fraud. We fooled many people into believing our lies and succeeded in cheating lots.
i have seen the light and so now WARNING ALL.... becareful of this scam.... i am a whistle blower!
We used to operate out of some body's garage and use free webmails like yahoo etc to conduct our business. (eg Renu_usmle@yahoo.com )
i am sorry for all that we cheated... but the cheating continues by the people still there : Renu_usmle@yahoo.com, finallypassedandgotr and smita_patle, stepsusmleforum so please be aware!!
