I know SDN is full of superstars with great board scores and clinical grades so this is probably not the best place to ask this question, but I was wondering how detrimental it is to just get Passes (in a P, HP, H system) for all your third year clerkships. I'm looking to do ER or anesthesia right now, so nothing ridiculously competitive. I've been through surgery, and psychiatry so far and will probably get passes on both of them. I just sort of get the sense that I will probably just pass all my rotations. My written evals haven't been bad but I just don't seem to really impress any of my attendings or residents. Furthermore, my shelf scores have kind of sucked (69, 68). I read and feel ready for the test but I guess I'm just not good at taking educted guesses on questions I'm not 100% sure about. Anyway just wondering how terrible it is to just be average in the grand scheme of residency applications.
