    Why are you disappointed? those are good scores. You will get Psych with those scores. I am a PGY 2 psych resident, and I have seen/interviewed applicants. I have seen lower and higher scores than yours, don't worry.

    your reply was heartening.

    could you give me some idea about what do they look for in an applicant?

    so far i have been told one needs 2 lors from psych consultants and 2 from physicians.

    Write a nice, unique PS that would intrigue the reader about you. Support your application by doing some kind of work or research in psychiatry (if possible), unless you are fresh out of school. When interviewing, show passion and enthuisiasm about why you want Pscyh. Obviously, with good scores and supporting documents everyone who applies is qualified but if your interest in Pscyh is evident, then it will show. Be yourself when interviewing, but be passionate & confident too (don't over do it). Your are good to go, don't worry. Again, they look for someone who really shows great passion & interest in the field. Good luck.
