    3 Step 1 failures, passed ck 1st time, passed CS 2nd time....

    Advertisements



    I guess I'm posting this in the hopes of being a successful underdog story...to give some hope to others out there in similar positions.

    4 interviews in total (3 Psych 1 FM), all went pretty well. I received all my invites before getting my results for my failed CS 1st attempt. No more invites after that, no surprises there.
    Fortunately I passed CS the second time, results came through in early Feb. Hopefully just in time for me to actually be ranked somewhere.

    I actually quite like 3 of the programs I interviewed at, but am hoping desperately for my first choice as the location and faculty are awesome.

    Now comes the dreaded wait for March 15...

    Good luck to all!



    Step 1- 80 (4th attempt)
    Step 2 ck - 80 (1st attempt)
    Step 2 cs - pass (2nd attempt)

    There will either be massive explosions and fireworks in celebration of my matching or a VERY brief message saying I am preparing to do the DREADED scramble dance!

    Good luck to all!

    I'm really hoping for fireworks...a) because your a legit good guy...well from my VMD exposure atleast and b) I really like fireworks!
