Failed CS, chances to match

Postby lifesucks » Wed Dec 08, 2010 7:03 pm

I got high 80's in step 1 and low 80's in step 2ck. I failed cs in my first attempt. If i retake step 2 cs again in 4 weeks and receive my score by march 2nd, what are my chances for the scramble. I am an IMG and went to Caribbeans, i still have 15 weeks of rotations left and will be ecfmg certified in may of 2011. I want to go for internal medicine or family medicine. I rushed into my exam to match this year, the biggest mistake o fmy life. Please give me your point of view, what are my chances and what i can do.

There are fewer and fewer spots remaining unfilled for the scarmble each year. I anticipate this year to be the worst. Primary care started getting more attention from American Grads asd Obama-care shifts the focus (and money) from specialists.

At the same time, you owe it to yourself to try anyway. If anyone has a chance, Caribbean grads are the ones.
