So I wanted to start out fourth year with 2 radiology electives and 1 interventional elective to get some letters and do some audition rotations. This puts me well into October by the time I sit for Step II. Is this too late? I heard that if you did well on Step I, that it wasnt a big deal to take step II early. I did better than average, but a good step II wouldnt hurt. I guess the big question is, if i take it in Oct. will the PD's even see it? If not then maybe I should stick to the comlex and pocket the $500 from the usmle since I'm not required to take that. -OR- I can move it up take it in Aug. and sacrifice a radiology audition rotation/chance at getting a good letter? Whats more important in my situation? -DO school -235/95 Step I -minimal research, no pubs -no radiology LOR yet. -half honors 3rd year -Guinness world record holder for longest watermelon seed spit. -lazy eye A good step II. or LOR/auditions?
