    Latest to take Step1?

    Advertisements



    Hey there,

    I finished the Island in April, and have been home studying for Step1, but I am scoring around barely passing for the NBME practice tests. I am scheduled to take it in 25 days or so, but I was thinking that I should postpone it and sign up for a review course such as the PASS program in Chicago. I heard that the school needs our scores in by August 28th at the latest, is that true? I was hoping to sign up for the July 5th-29th PASS program and then take the test after a week after that. If I took the test after the first week of August, would my score come back before the 28th? Any tips on who to contact at AUC for clarification on this? I know this is a really important exam that will determine my future so I think it will be worth the investment.

    Thanks

    I wouldn't rush the step if you are barely passing. This is literally the most important exam for us coming from the islands and you want to make sure you get well over 200 on it. I guess you're from my class. I'm taking it next week but that's because I feel i can get at least a 230. If I didn't feel this way, I would take it as late as I could to do the best I can. Failing the step 1 time is pretty much a guaranteed lost matching opportunity. Majority of programs throw the application straight in the garbage. It's better to get 189 the first time then to fail and then get a 260. I know a few of our classmates taking it end of august so you should be okay but I would confirm with the clinical office.

    After calling MEAS, I was told August 6th is the last day.
