  Hi Guys,
I appeared in my Step 3 exam last year and failed the first time. I applied for the match and cleared my USMLE Step 3 second time but I think it was too late so I could not match.

I have been trying to research about the consequences of Step 3 attempt in matching for residency, but there are not so many blogs on the internet. Most of the blogs are about the residents who failed Step 3 during residency.

My question is, do you know anyone who failed his Step 3 exam and matched? Step 3 exam is not a requirement for the programs, but still, they consider it as a failure if one has an attempt although I passed it the second time. What are my chances of getting a match with an attempt in Step 3?
I had an average score in previous USMLE exams and cleared them in the first attempt.

Any input will be highly appreciated.

Thank you.

  So are you saying you applied with a failed step 3? or no step 3 the first time around?

  I applied with a failed attempt in Step 3 in September but had passed the exam in October.
