    How Do I Figure Out....

    Advertisements



    I will finish my basic sciences in the end of December of 2007. How can I estimate if I will be able to make the earliest possible match or would I have bad luck and be forced to wait until the next year....I am kind of worried since I started May 2006 I think I might be forced to wait for a later match. I appreciate any input.

    Hi Almostfamous,
    If you finish basic sciences in Dec 07, I anticipate you will need atleast a month or two to study for Step 1 and then you have to wait for your score before you start your clinical rotations (if you are FMG)......depends on your school policy. But hypothetically if you start your clinical rotations in March 08, you will need 90 credits or weeks of clinical rotations. 90 weeks is roughly equivalent to 20 months. So I think you will be able to make the 2010 match even if you take a few short breaks here and there and take a month or two to study for Step 2. I too started my basic sciences in May (2003)and started clinical rotations in Feb (2005) and took a few breaks and will be done with all 90 credits in Dec. 06. So don't worry......just make sure you make it through your basic sciences without failing!
