    Mid tier allopathic MD
    Step 1: <212
    Step 2 (took July to try and overcome low step 1) : 255+
    Third year: HP plus P during Covid times
    Couple of case reports and posters and a journal article
    Decent volunteering and leadership
    3 solid radiology letters

    I know the odds are pretty low because of my crappy Step 1 but any advice would be appreciated.

      Currently an MS4 so I can't really comment on your chances. But I did just want to congratulate you on that Step 2 score. That's a hell of jump.

      (I do think you have a chance given US-MD + Step 2; you'll definitely need to apply broadly, though.)

        apply super broadly, but according to the NRMP interactive data based on the last 4-5 application seasons and MD students with your step stats, you have almost 100% chance of matching. Just apply to like every DR program.

          Thanks man, I scored way lower than my practice tests for Step 1 on my actual test and definitely felt the heat for Step 2. Good luck to you this cycle as well!

            Where is the interactive data? I just read the nrmp match data but that wasn't interactive. Thanks
