    The one that surprises me is how many PDs want you to have already passed step 2 before they send an interview offer. My application had me listed as "scheduled" or "planning to take" or whatever, but I didn't really feel like anyone cared whether I had done so yet. I think it's usually kind of a given that if you can pull off a competetive step 1 score you should have no trouble passing step 2.

    Agreed - that number does not line up at all with my experience...

    Has anyone come across any programs all that did require a Step 2 score prior to giving an interview?
