I know "just take step 1"... but I'm curious who matched with just a level 1 score?

Members don't see this ad.

So last year looks like there were 9 people with an “unknown” step 1 score. So those 9 may have not taken step 1. 5 matched

If you want to match at even a remotely decent program take step 1

Yeah, few programs would consider you and things are becoming significantly more competitive for DOs in radiology. Take step 1 and 2. Only program that might take people without is Oklahoma, but even then I’m not sure they would.

Isn't step 1 p/f now? Just take it, it's not a big deal.
