Not sure this needs to be in the confidential forum. There's a lovely IM WAMC thread where you'll get a lot more helpful replies.Hi I wanted some advice on applying IM this cycle. Im located in the NE and I have a comlex level 1 retake 390's, level 1: 450-465, level 2: 480-500. step 2: 226, Im studying for step 1 rn and am trying to take it by the end of this month if that makes any difference. Im wondering how many programs should I apply to? Will most programs just automatically filter me out because of my level 1 retake? Does the step 2 help at all ? Should I even bother taking step 1 or is it too late ? Any advice would be appreciated im just feeling super defeated that no matter what I can never move past my retake and its going to just continue to haunt me.
