Hi

I'm an american IMG planning to apply in the match of 2012. I have completed my step 1 with 253/99 score and done with step 2 cs. have 4 months of clinical experience(hands on) with 3 decent LORs. I'll be giving step 2 ck in a couple of months.

Now here's the question-
I had failed a part of my medical school abroad and I had to repeat the exam which I cleared immediately in the next attempt.

Will this affect my residency selection???(although I had failed a subject that was different from the field I'm interested in applying for residency)
I'm very concerned about this. I keep getting nightmares of getting rejected and not matching anywhere :(( Someone please help.

Wrong forum. This is for pre-med.

Congrats on the high USMLE score.

Ask your question in one of the Specialty Specific forums here, depending on the field you want to enter: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/forumdisplay.php?f=35 I suggest you include exactly what you failed and when, and also whether you got honors in any third year clerkships.
