    taken- both CS and CK

    but i wouldn't wait that long- god forbid something happen- you won't have time to take it again...and PASSED scores need to be in before the ROL is due.

    Need your advice: for my friend:

    She scheduled for step 2 CK for December 5, 2007. She is very busy in rotation(6am-9Pm). She is thinking to move the date around December 20, 2007 so she cam better preapre for the exam. But worried that she might miss the match in March 2008. Also concrn that she only got 5 interviews so far and how they will rate for matcj if Step 2 results do not come in time.Already took Step 2 CS in October. Waitinfg for result
    She has applied for IM residencies and Step 1 score 81.

    Is December 20 too late for sitting ?or she should stick to December 5 or move atleast december 15?

    ASAP advice appreciated. Thanks

    at this time of year, i think its getting close to the point that she needs her step 2 ck in ASAP to secure some more interviews.

    technically? she just needs to take CK by Dec 31st to be eligible for the 2008 match.

    realistically? she should have taken CK a few months ago (harsh but true)...with an 81 for step I, her app would have probably seen in a better light if she had >90 on CK when her eras went out, so the difference between the 5th and the 20th? can't see how there is much in relation to making her application more appealing.

    BUT, if taking it on the 20th will make her feel more prepared for the exam and give her a better chance to get a higher score, then she should definitely take it later...worse than no CK score? a FAILED CK score...

    if your friend is scoring what she wants on the NBME by the 1st or 2nd, then its cold feet and she should take CK, but if the scores aren't where she wants or she really feels uncomfortable with her knowledge base, then wait (but take it before the 31st!)

    as for just 5 interviews? maybe she should apply to some more programs...its coming close to some deadlines, but you never know...

    Thanks so much Rokshana. She is planning to take on December 5.

    Does Step 2 CS results come at your homeaddress in postal mail or just come via Email in your account?

    Thanks

    neither. They post the scores as a .pdf on the oasis site. You'll get an email saying that you score has been reported and a link to the the oasis site (usually everyone gets their score within the 1st couple of days of the report date (dec 10th I think?).
