    HI, ive heard that ophtho is pretty competative, really competative actually. I am seriously considering the field, but only started doing so last semester. All i have done, ophtho wise, is go and learn a little more about the field by going to the OR at 6 in the morning till 12 and occasionally going to clinics. Im starting my second block of third year. I took the step one and only got a 228/92. I have no idea how good/bad of a score that is, esp for optho. Is that board score not competative enough? And what can i do to help my chances? I was thinking of doing one block of optho research, but aside from that, research wise, if i plan on not taking any years off, i dont know if ill be able to put in any more time in research than that now that im already in third year. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    You'll have an idea if you read the FAQ. Your scores are on par with matched residents.
