    MDApps:
    Scores are normally posted at 11AM EST. should get an email sometime shortly before then saying they will be posted. Sometime the email comes late so it's worth just checking for your score at 11.

    I'm 4 weeks out (7/11 exam). Still holding out hope for today. Has to be this week. Not sure what is going on. I called them on Mon and they said scores can come out at any time, most of the time on Wed, but doesn't have to be... great. Any news yet from 7/11 takers?

    Hey guys, I called ECFMG and it seems like they are having some difficulties with the score releasing software - they are working on fixing it as we speak. Fingers crossed!

    Yeah - the representative said that they should be released sometime later today! I asked for an "approximate timing" but the only response i got was "shortly"..

    I hope so too!

    Not sure if this happened to anyone else, but I took it on the 19th (not the 13th) and I got an email at 11am saying my scores would be up. I'm pretty sure I failed so I wont be checking my scores for a while to confirm if they really did get released or not lol.

    Took USMLE July 12. Scores came out this morning at 11am, got the email at 10:45am. I am a DO student at a low tier school (according to SDN...)

    Also to everyone who thinks "you shouldn't have gotten in anywhere with that low of MCAT..." You are right, my interviewers were super friendly and the guy who wrote my LOR was one of my interviewers personal family doctor (so I lucked out and sold the **** out of myself).

    But to the person that thinks the MCAT means how you will do in med school or boards... SUCK IT...

    MCAT: 22
    Class Rank/ GPA: Top 15% (honors), cumulative GPA was 93.4%.
    NBME 17: 242 one week into dedicated (7 weeks out)
    NBME 16: 252 (5 weeks out)
    NBME 18: 246 (1 week out)
    UWSA 1: 252 ( 2 weeks out)
    UWSA 2: 258 (3 days prior)

    Real deal: 250

    Addendum:
    COMLEX: 768

    Method: UFAP so hard over summer I broke something... plus sketchy micro and BRS physiology; approximately 7,000 questions between UWORLD (1.5 times), Kaplan USMLE qbank (one time), and combank (like 1200 questions or something).

    If I'm being honest... I started out by reading every answer explanation and then minimize the page and type a one liner question in a journal document about the subject (the big idea the question was after) with the plan I'd go back through it; that rarely happened. Towards the end UWORLD I stopped doing the journal because I didn't have time to go through it; also towards the end I got lazy/ burnt out and just started reading the correct answer when I got it right, and all of the answers when I got it wrong. It was the same for the other qbanks (I picked at Kaplan qbank during the school year alongside our class material, so if we were covering cardiology type stuff I'd do those questions as much as possible without compromising gpa, and almost finished it by dedicated). I averaged about 12-15 questions an hour to take and review towards the end, but started at 10-12 per hour at the beginning of dedicated (but I'm a slow studier).

    Hello! Took step July 7th, and still don’t have results. No email, anything.
    Maybe European region is an issue. Is there anybody who took it in Europe? How long had you been waiting for results?

    I felt exactly how you described your experience, I wouldn't say it differently. I gave the test on Wednesday and since then have been pretty freaked out but I'm trying to hold my feelings and not searching anything online on the Qs I felt were wrong. We just need to hang in there like everyone else is gonna tell us.

    18: 520- 232 may 19
    17: 480 - 223 may 13

    Real Test: 250 (June 5)

    I didn't actually finish uworld, or sketchy, or really any of my plan, and I opened FA about five times, so I'm posting in the hope of calming down people out there in the 2017-2018 whose peers are talking about finishing their second pass through uworld and the 75 times they've read FA.

    I'm timed out of uworld and I don't remember what percentage I got right but it was 85th percentile (I had 100 questions left on test day).

    Chronic stalker of this thread....
    I did post my NBME and UWorld scores earlier and I did score lower than NBME 18.
    I do feel a little disappointed but I am content with my score.
    Step 1- 235-240.
    I am interested in General Surgery but haven't ruled any of the other specialities out. Hopefully, my score hasn't hurt my chances.
    Thank you to every single poster!! This thread kept me sane, inspired and motivated me!!

    Good luck to everyone!

    Interesting caveat for those who are taking Step soon, I found that RX was fantastic for getting a quick run down of FA without getting bogged down by minutiae. I ran through all of those questions 1x about 3 weeks before my exam (+ incorrects). I also did UW 3x w/ incorrects. First UW pass was like a 54% then 78% then 95%.

    I would get roughly high 70s and low 80s occasionally. Which is a huge difference from the initial 95/100 I use to get on blocks. They made their questions less buzz wordy and it really increases RXs efficacy.
