    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if any of you are sending your step 2 score reports, or copies of score reports, to the programs you're interviewing at. It appears to me that NBME doesn't automatically send these reports out for early match folks.

    I've been asked about my score a couple of times, and one program wanted the report, so should I go ahead and send each program a copy?

    It sounds like you should forward your step 2 scores. Strange I haven't encountered any programs that have asked me about step 2.


    Good luck with the rest of your interviews!

    I'm in a similar situation....I'm thinking about just forward the report to the one program that specifically inquired.

    I had programs ask for them. I faxed them to everyone regardless of whether they asked for them because they were much much better than my step 1 scores and I think it helped my application.
    I think if your score would take away from your application, don't send unless they ask for them. If they are about the same as step 1 then send anyway because it can't really count against you and then your app is more complete.
