Just wondering how important part II will be for my oral surgery application. I have a 91 on part one and a class rank in about the top 33%. I have published research, presented at a few national meetings, and have a lot of extracurriculars (who doesn't). My question is, how important is my part II score? Should I shoot for mid 90's or doesn't it really matter so long as it's not near failing?

Just take it after you match and you won't have to worry about your score. You need a big fat "P".

It comes into play if you don't match. Shoot for low 90's anyways.

Just take it after your applications are in and don't worry about it. Nobody cares about it.

Might as well aim high right? :D - the score conversions for part I and part II are significantly different. I'm not sure why...
