Anyone have any insight on how serious to take FREIDA? Specifically, if a program lists Step 2 score as necessary for an interview invite, do they really stick to that? I'll be taking it at the end of the month so it won't be on my application when I submit in about 1wk. Thanks.

Personally, I wouldn't take FREIDA as all that reliable. For example, I've compared various residency websites with what's on FREIDA, but some of the information doesn't match (e.g., minimum Step 1/2 scores). I assume the website is more reliable in general than FREIDA. But FREIDA is useful as a rough guide.

If it is one of your top programs, you should confirm independently. FREIDA isn't perfect.
