    too late for 07 match?

    Advertisements



    Planing to take CS the end of Oct, Step 1 the end of Nov and CK at the end of Dec. Does this sound a doable timetable for 07 residency match (assuming all pass) or purely a crazy idea?

    Have you been studying for all 3 exams simultaneously? Even if you were, taking all 3 in such rapid fashion may backfire...failing any one of them will pretty much put you into the 08 Match anyway, and the failed attempts will be a detriment to your USMLE transcript. Personally, I rushed myself into taking Step 2 CK when I was never fully prepared, tried to apply and interview, only to be withdrawn from the Match b/c I didn't pass the exam. This yr, I did nothing but study for Step 2 CK, finally passed, be ECFMG certified, and can now apply fully qualified. Bottom line - Do Not Rush.
