Hi i took a delay to take step but scored a 250...how bad does this look? i took a three month LOA and am an american medical student who suffered family and personal issues at the time of step study block. I am interested in ortho..thanks in advance for the advice!

Probably better if you had bombed it. ...... j/k.

Looks like the LOA did the trick. 3 months is not a big deal to delay and if you graduate on time it will not be noticed.

You will have to provide an explanation when you are filling out ERAS to that question...

Was your medical education/training extended or interrupted?

Not bad in the slightest. Some students at my school delayed their's up to August while others took it in March.

Good to learn it all worked out for you. Cheers!

So what did bannie do to get smacked by the banhammer?

He may very well not know why he is on post hold.

But reading admin responses to his posts made publicly, my guess is it is a combination of allegedly misrepresenting his status and posting stuff that some don't seem to agree with, etc.
