My dean tells me her gut feeling is that I should not release my step 2 scores to programs. Do any of you know if there are programs that will not rank candidates who do not have step 2 scores available? I'm applying in Boston/NYC. None of the PDs mentioned that we *must* release our step 2 scores.

If they will hurt you, do not release until after rank order lists are released. Simple as that. However, you'd better poll a few programs to see if that will kill your ranking. Ask the coordinator/PD and tell her/him that you want to remain anonymous. Good Luck.+pity+
Is it possible to release your step II score only to certian programs through eras.. ie those that say they must have it to rank but not release it to others?
