I am looking for a preliminary year position in either Internal Medicine or Surgery, or a categorical Internal Medicine position. I have a 254/99 step 1, 251/99 step 2CK, Pass for CS.

You mean to say that you didn't graduate in 1980? Ha ha ha. lol Anyways, if your scores are legit and you have decent bedside manners I can't imagine you having a big problem landing a position in IM (Preliminary or Otherwise). I would check out the post from last week which really summed up your outside of the match options (interestingly and as a fyi, there hasn't been many pgy-1 openings posted on findaresiden.com in recent days - which leaves me wondering why in you didn't scramble into a position back in March when there were tons of pgy-1's available...):

This is the Post You'll Want From Last Week:

What's with your freak-out comment? Some people are better test takers than others. So be it. Your step scores are locked in forever so get over it. Focus on what you can change, improve, or highlight in your application and let the chips fall where they may.
