    The average at every medical school is greater than the overall average nationally. It's a general rule.

    Actually what schools out there use shelf exams during M1/2?

    LSU does too.

    I don't understand why however, they keep telling us that the questions on them were designed for people who've been thru the second year curriculum, since they are retired Step 1 questions, and that we won't understand some of them . . . why are there questions on my final that I'm not going to understand??? I don't get it at all, I'm just going to try and stay as unstressed as possible thruought the experience of shelfs week that is fast approaching.

    I think our average was probably lower than the national average this year. We did terribly because there was a lot of stuff that we had never seen before (ie lots of endo, etc and we haven't taken endo). They didn't tell us the national average though so I was just curious. thanks.
