So I just got back my Step II scores and passed both the CS and CK - BUT unfortunately I did have a significant plunge in my CK score (to right around 200) from my step I (meaning if I had those scores prior to applying I would probably not have gotten interviews at some of my top choices). Anyway, I'm pretty confident I'll match into a highly-regarded IM program but I know I want to do a subspecialty fellowship probably in GI. My question is how much of a factor is Step II CK scores in fellowship applications. The rest of my CV is very strong and my step I score is average. Would a high step 3 score (i'll make sure to devote more time to studying this time!!!) off-set a low step II CK? I would be thinking of top academic programs for fellowship application - assuming I do fine in residency (which I'm sure I will ). Any people gone through the fellowship application process and have any opinions?
