Hello. I keep hearing people throw around 230 as a common step 1 cut-off for ophtho programs. Does this sound high to anyone else? The only reason I say this is due to the fact that the average step 1 score for matching applicants didn't even reach 230 until 2006. I realize that this probably varies greatly depending on the reputation of the program, but I would guess that more prestigious programs probably do use a 230 or above, while middle tier groups probably use about a 220. Any thoughts?
