As we all know, the military requires step 2 scores for their GME application process. So, we have to take step 2's early in our fourth year of med school. However, what's the deal with the new BS $1000 clinical skills section of the exam? Do we also have to take that before applying? If we could take it during residency, I think it would save some cash b/c then I might be able to write it off as some sort of business expense. If I take it now, it'll be my last thousand dollars of loans and will probably end up being $2000 by the time I pay the loans off.
