    My experience getting cores

    Advertisements



    1. i took the usmle on jan 26th.
    2. i did the oasis trick on thursday (feb 16) and saw that i passed.
    3. i called V at MEAS immedietely to see how full my first choice (providence) was holding up. i was told that there was only one slot left for MI, but he couldnt slot me in it until he had my actual score report.
    4. waited for it in the mail on saturday (feb 18), but it still didnt come.
    5. wished that presidents day was not on monday (no mail) .
    6. received my report today and scanned into an email both sides of it as well as faxed both sides to meas asap.
    7. about 45 minutes later, i got an email from V telling me that i got that last spot at MI.

    TO THE CHICKEN LITTLES OUT THERE------ THERE IS NO TOWN IN UK CALLED PROVIDENCE OR MICHIGAN OR SOUTHFIELD.

    -----------------------------------------------
    as far as what slots are left, when i found out about the single slot left for MI last week, i also found out about cali (second choice).

    3 of 4 was filled for april kern. 0 of 4 were filled for june kern. V had a score report that wanted cali but he didnt know which start date they wanted. so as of late last week, april may have already been filled or 1 slot filled for june.

    wasnt interested with new york but they have loads of slots there.

    -------------------------------------------------
    this is only the update i got late last week. im just posting my experience, dont take it as absolute. i am not MEAS.

    this is VMD, not SDN. lets not turn this place into the joke that SDN has become with the egos.

    ill leave it that im somewhere between 182-270.
    im confident that my score will land me a pretty good IM program as long as my step 2 score is relatively similar.

    step 1 score: happy

    I see your point. I tend to forget that people are not always honest when it comes to anon boards.

    In hindsight, wasn't the clinical rotation selection process easier than ordering from Starbucks?


    BTW, Kernees got our clinical elective list... Easy process as well. Hardest part of it was filling out the space they had labelled "Anticipated Specialty:"
