    Residency Chances

    Advertisements



    Just a quick 2 questions to see everyones opinions.....

    First: I pretty much feel like my chances for this match is shot due to the unlikely timing of my failure of CK, but suppose i take it and get greater than an 85 two digit score how would my chances be for IM or FM for next years match, and is it even possible for me to compete in the scramble if I take CK by the end of the month?

    Other red flags, failed one semester, and have a 79 Step 1 score...

    Any help would greatly be appreciated

    u will do yourself a huge favor by studying hard core for the CK and doing really well on it. If you get a 85 on it, u should prolly match somewhere if you apply widely. This is for FM. If you are lucky u can get IM. Its really hard for IMGs to scramble into a spot. We are the last batch they look at.

    Study really hard for the CK and go through the match process next year. In the meanwhile u can do whatever u always wanted to do.

    You should really study hard for your CK try to get over a 90 to secure your self a IM, with a 85 IM is very hard but is still doable
