Greenlee said:i don't know how it happened. i felt good during the test and came out of it sure that i did better than step 1. but alas, i actually went down a few points (5 to be exact). how is this going to affect my chances when applying for internal medicine? is this the kiss of death or what? any advice (or much needed consolences)?
Greenlee said:the problem is that i went from a 211 on step 1 (already a less than stellar score) down to a 206 on step 2. does this new score really weaken my application now?

its too late...u had to ahve sent out the step 1 transcript out first..then u coulda held onto the step 2 i believe goodluckVenom said:Hi...desperately need your advice.
Did well on step 1: 223/90, but basically bombed step 2: 201/82. Do you think this will drastically decrease my chances at top IM programs? Will I need to explain what happened? How do I release step 1 alone on Eras and Step 2 later if I already recieved my step 2 score?
