Hey everyone,

I did much worse on Step 2 than Step 1 (240--->210) and I'm applying to a competitive specialty. I'm kicking myself in ***** about it and getting many sleepless nights. Is all hope lost? Thanks.

I know how you feel -

I feel like I did soooo bad on that exam to the point of failure.... I guess be happy that you didn't fail it and have to take it again???


they'll probably glaze over it...


and realize that all things happen for a reason - your world is unfolding just as it should - think of it that way.

(a) another ressurected 3 year old post
(b) psych is like the easiest specialty to match into except for PM+R. The average step score is something like "FAILED" You're good
