Hello everybody. I am an IMG and did not do well on steps (205 for Step 1 and "average" 235 for Step 2 CK), also it's already been more than 5 years since my graduation. Being realistic I think that my chances to get a residency spot are very small. So my plan is to go to the osteopathic school, do my best on COMPLEX, recommend myself during rotations etc and improve thereby my chances of getting into a specialty I'm interested in (don't laugh but ideally it’s surgery. Now I’m also thinking about EM). But I don't quite understand what will happen with my USMLE scores and how they affect the match. Will I have a chance to retake Steps during the school? If not, then what could PDs think about the applicant, who took USMLE like 8-9 years ago and got bad scores but just graduated from osteopathic school with good COMPLEX and recommendations? I know that ACGME and AOA merging is coming so there are a lot of uncertainties and it is difficult to do any predictions but I would appreciate your opinions about this topic!
