Hello all, I really need some advice. I'm applying for peds and I just found out that I failed Step 2. I have gone to 3 interviews so far and have 12 more scheduled. I barely passed Step 1, so does anyone have any advice as to what to tell my interviewers when they ask me why I failed?? AND...does failing Step 2 mean that I have no chance of matching?? Will I still match if programs like me? Does this totally ruin my life??. Has anyone failed Step 2 and STILL MATCHED??? Also: when is the best time to re-take the exam? I Really need some encouragement. Thanks.
