SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I received my Step I score yesterday and was a bit disappointed with my results, so I am wondering if requesting a recheck would be worthwhile? My score was 232, which I know isn't awful, but I was averaging about 75% on USMLE World (unused questions, timed mode) in the month leading up to the exam, and received score predictions in the 250s from the USMLE World diagnostic exams, including a 253 the day before the exam. Is it normal for the diagnostic exams to be so far off? I was especially surprised to see my score because the exam itself felt very similar to the USMLE World and I honestly came out expecting a score in the 240s at worst. I am an IMG who graduated more than 10 years ago, but I have US experience as an ICU RN and am a US citizen. I am interested in becoming a hospitalist, cardiologist, or intensivist. I do not have any research, but can get LORs from a couple of doctors in each field I'm interested in. In light of these facts, do you think requesting a recheck would be worthwhile to improve my chances of getting interviews and ultimately matching, or should I just concentrate on knocking Step II out of the park? Thanks in advance for any advice!
