    typically yes. you need to do very well on your boards. most people i know got upper 90s who got EM. BUT, i'm not saying that's the cutoff mark. there is a smart girl from our school who i think has the potential to get those great scores, but even if she doesn't, she was a parametic for many years. she has some nice practical experience, and a fantastic personality. so i think she'll land EM with no problems. there are many factors involved, but bottom line is, yes, is a toughy, but not impossible. just work hard.

    work hard, do great on away rotations, get GREAT SLOR's from academic EM faculty, do well on boards (the higher the better...but you don't 'need' high 90's), and have a good personality/easy to get along with. If you don't have the last part...forget about it...
