  Just wondering how much does step 3 help in getting a residency?
how much does it improve chances in any specialty?
Thanks...

  I think it helps a lot, so it's going to be much better if you take it before next september :)

  It certainly helps BUT it is a tough exam and many who get 99/99 in 1 and 2 usually get 80s or even just pass. I even know people who failed it although they have 99/99.

So take it ONLY if you feel confident and if you do very well in UW, etc mock tests. No point taking risk if you have decent (>90) s1 and 2 scores in first attempt.

  i cant say anything regarding help, because i didnt take step 3 and got matched, but my friend took step 3 had score above 240 but didnt match..mine and her scores and year of graduation were pretty similar..

i do regret of not taking step 3 only for having J1 visa and not H1b :(

  If you get 90+ it will help.. Or I think will hurt alot from what colleagues have said

  @help4usmle sounds like a clown in a circus!
The company he advertises has no physical address, no valid phone number, no reviews by ANY students, has a very dodgy previous reputation (google : topper usmle). To cap it all, he wants 12,7500 for this joke? Even madoff will be impressed with this scheme

  @alloutusmle. I just did the google search you recommended and here's is an interesting fact of the company founded in 2000 in OH that you are advertising .. it is currently DEAD - no heart beat, no pulse ... DEAD : http://www.bbb.org/cleveland/business-reviews/scholastic-prep-courses-books-a...oh-39001265
It was unrated on BBB when in operation ... why?? .. because no one signed up! jeepers creepers!!
