* Low step 1 score, need advice
 #858110  
  lydia219 - 05/18/19 00:54
 
  My score just out, i feel screwed i got 210 on my step, i’m non us img. Do i have any chance to move forward? Can i still match in IM or neurology? I see there is a lot program made step 1 filter in 220, i’m kinda scare if i move forward even with a blast step 2 score, the step 1 filter will pull me down.

Thank you

  That score for a non us img is not good. It will be difficult to match in those two fields without a very good step 2 score. I suggest taking step 2 in your home country and see how you do from there.

  If i can get good step 2 score, do you think it can compensate?

  It will help show PDs that you can score well on tests. But the step 1 score will still be there. Getting a good step 2 score, will not completely compensate for a poor step 1 score, it will help a lot though.

  You still have chances try to get good score in other steps and complete in first attempt, along with scores try to get multiple hands-on clinical experience in the specialty you want to apply for match.

  If the program has a filter for the scores then there may be chances to get your application filter out, but if you have gained high scores in other scores the programs will consider your application you need to complete in first attempt and gain multiple hands-on rotations for improving the CV and make the application strong.
