Hi guys! I'm wrapping up first year here pretty quick and love love love derm. Regardless if that dream sticks, I want to gear up to have a great 2nd year and have a goal of at minimum a 235 on Step 1 to have a shot at this whole derm thing...Or at least keep my options open. I've turned out to be a pretty decent student but am by NO means a genius, or anywhere NEAR the most gifted med student out there, at all. Just how hard is it to attain this kind of a score - can it be done with a decent level of intelligence and a whole lot of hard work? And for those who did it, but were in my position in terms of natural ability, how does ones study plan need to be different than, say, my boyfriends who loves the idea of internal?
