Hello everyone,

I was looking at all the stellar STEP 1 scores that many of the SDN users have been posting and realized the impending doom that my score potentially represents in terms of competitiveness to top-notch or even medium-range residencies. In fact, I feel like an idiot because my score is quite sub par compared to the national average. :scared: Fact is standardized exams are not my forte. I know that other things count, but in the end people say the hands-down #1 factor is the board exam score. Is that really true? And how do you find out if this so? I want to ask people their honest opinion of where I stand or what my chances are with my profile:
