Is it recommended to take comlex 2 in the summer/early fall to get scores to ortho programs? I have generally heard that step 1 is much more important. Is step 2 as important for DO ortho programs? The exception I can see is if you did poor on step 1 and want to improve on 2. I have the opton of taking it in July or September, or just hold off and take in January. Your thoughts much appreciated!
