DO student here looking to go to ER, applying to both AOA and ACGME.

Grade wise very average student but great experiences, SLOE's, and LORs, I feel like I will do well in interviews. COMLEX 1 489, COMLEX 2 was happy to increase to 576.

However, after my low Comlex 1, was hoping to excel on Comlex 2 and also take Step 2 to better my changes. I got 220 on USMLE Step 2.

At this point, I am unsure if I should include my USMLE Step 2 Score on all my applications. Obviously will share my score if asked, but I feel like my application looks better without it. Ideas?

While 220 is not ideal it meets the cutoffs for most programs.
