Hey Guys, Congrats to all those who Matched Monday and will find out where tomorrow. Unfortunately, I was not as lucky. I had 12+ Interviews and all went GREAT (or so I thought) and ranked every single one but no luck. My stats are as follows: Osteopathic Medical Student Step 1: 218 COMLEX 1: 539 COMLEX 2: 559 COMLEX 2 PE: Pass All board exams passed on first attempt President of PsychSIG on Campus A lot of community service and volunteering with award from city mayor, while in medical school. I have good LORs, decent ECs Research with 2 publications (1 psych, 1 non-psych) 1 book review accepted for publication Red Flags: -Took a leave of absence after 1st year of medical school due to family emergency (for 1 year) -No other red flags In your opinion what are some of the best ways for me to strengthen my application for next cycle? I cannot see myself going into any other field. I love Psych! Some high yield things I'm thinking are given my below average Step 1 score, to take the Step 2 exam and do well, also thinking of becoming a Mental Health First Aid Instructor and give courses in my local community to raise awareness of mental health issues, Not sure if I should go ahead and take COMLEX 3 in this year, also thinking of networking by attending various Psych conferences, etc. If there is anything else you think that may help me, please do let me know. I would really appreciate and constructive feedback. Thanks all!
