    Probably not the right forum, but it's been rumored there is data available about average USMLE scores (step 1) of recent graduates broken down by specialty choice. Anyone ever heard of such a thing?

    I have some info regarding neuro matches that I received from a friend in the field.

    The mean USMLE I scores for those accepted into a program is a 235. The mean USMLE I score for those who applied but were not accepted is a 213. These are stats from last year.
