I am applying for IM this year and just got an email from the clerkship director that I am going to get a pass for my medicine AI. There is some grade inflation at my school so high pass is expected and pass basically means you are f***. At least that's how I interpret it. I got all high pass in 3rd year and clinically honor the medicine clerkship back then as well. Step 1 227 and still waiting for step 2. How dead am I with this? I am from cali and trying to go back home for residency if possible. Sometimes I feel like attendings just mark pass down the middle without realizing how important this is to the students.
