    Nobody on here is a program director, but I wouldn't say your scores are too low to get anesthesia...i've heard several stories of people getting such and such residencies with failing scores, etc who ended up in pretty nice residency positions. best thing to do is apply and see if it works...good luck
    Good luck.

    i realize the nobody here is a PD. i thought that maybe someone cruising this forum might know someone who matched in anesthesia or maybe someone who matched in anesthesia last yr. and may be able to compare there scores to mine. thanks.

    sure, there are people who get into bottom tier anes programs.

    as far as i've seen, anesthesia matches haven't been very impressive. it's like carib students get the left overs.

    check out the stats for the last match in this pdf. Anes is within reasonable reach.

    i know numerous people who got gas residencys, mostly uni programs, and soem had similar scores. be warned though, the attractiveness of different specialties change with time, and i have heard that gas is getting harder to get.

    im sorry but im a prospective student for Ross and i hear a lot about how caribbean med students are will not be able to get any residency. What does "match" mean exactly = competitive?? Anyways what is the max score that people can get on the steps?? ~90 is not high?

    BLUENUMBER: the 'match' is the process by which residency programs and 4th yr. students are selected for each other. it's way too long to explain. the short....you apply to programs, hope for interviews, then you 'rank' the programs that you interviewed (best to least desirable) with, then this sophisticated computer crunches all the data across the U.S. and "matches" people with programs. again, way too complicated to address here. Don't worry about the 'max' score...no one gets that...aim for the 90's

    I just started my clincal rotations. So I don't know anyone who has macthed. An 82 I am assuming is your 2 digit score meaning your 3 digit score was somewhere in the 220. I don't think that is going to be hign enough. Your just slightly above the national average.
