Step 1: 251
Comlex 1: 617

Step 2: ?????
Comlex 2: 695

Had 6 weeks dedicated for step 2, took them with 1 day in between (step before comlex). Annoying exam as usual.

Thanks dude means a lot. I studied really hard third year to make a come back!
I know you did haha. Goes without saying. You smashed it. If I was a residency PD I would interview you for sure. I am not saying everyone thinks this way, but I am more impressed with you scores than someone who got a 600/600 or 240/240.

Still waiting on Step 2 CK results for Aug 28th. I thought Level 2 was a weird exam with many out of left field questions, hopefully my step 2 CK is above 250 but we shall see...

Prefacing this with lollll
Step 1: 243
Step 2: 250

Level 1: 732(????!!!! **** how will I improve on level 2)
Level 2: 641 (lol the answer is I didn’t, despite an improvement on our mandatory COMSAE)

Hope this doesn’t close doors for me for EM... but if programs are relying super heavily on the new level 2 CE thennnnn I don’t wanna go there. I think my percentile is still probably ok?? I hate OMM.

Same man.
Level 1: 598
Level 2: 519
Almost 80 pt drop....
Said it before and saying it again... big ol' ffffff to the NBOME. Dropped 90 points on my end and concerned programs are gonna care about that big of a tank. I'm sorry this happened. Hopefully programs take into account this new dumb blueprint.

Congrats to all the amazing scores on here! I am but a mere plebeian, here are my scores:

Level 1: 500-510
Level 2: 500-510

*New blueprint 101: 530 ish (2 weeks out)
*New blueprint 102: 460 ish (1 week out)

;______; No Step scores so was hoping to improve on my Level 2, but alas, it is what it is. I hope this doesn't kill my chances at FM on the east coast @[email protected]

Sorry to hear :/ yeah it sucks. Just gotta be honest about it if there's actually a reason. If not then and there's no rhyme or reason then it just comes down to a new scoring system perhaps and just got unlucky.

Gotta call them out lol chances are no EM program will even care about your comlex with your step scores. Most of the people in my class have 450-500 that are applying EM. So I think you’re fine lol

Anyone found a way to try to guess the mean and SD based on that lame figure?
Measured the pixels on that lame figure. If my calculations are correct, mean for first-time takers is ~587 with SD of ~43. Fun how our Level 1 mean decreased from the Class of '19 (thanks standardization) while the Level 2 mean increased.

For those of you who got your scores yesterday and passed, congrats! To anyone who score was less than stellar or failed I am sorry the NBOME sucks. Believe it or not exams aren’t everything and you can still be a wonderful doctor.

Question though— what time did you all get the email that scores were available? Should be getting mine today or tomorrow according to score release dates.
