Stats: USMLE step 1 = 237. Don't have COMLEX results yet. (Still hopping mad about the USMLE; last NBME was 249 - somehow blew it by 12 pts despite studying my brains out.) Have a ****ty feeling I didn't score up to potential on the COMLEX because I was simply burnt the hell out by that point. Have one co-authored clinical journal article that just got sent out for review; additional articles based on the data from that study are also likely. Probably interested in going allo (not 100% sure, however). Potential interests: ROAD specialties, EM, IM, possibly neuro. I understand derm, ENT, and urology are probably hopeless (didn't really care about derm but would've liked some shot at the others) and allo optho is probably a very long shot as a DO. Questions: - Do I stand any sort of chance at matching allo rads with this score? - What's the deal with DO rads? I've heard some very mixed things about those programs. - What tier of allo IM progs would be in reach for me? - How competitive would I be for "top" MD anesthesia progs? Is DO anesthesia worth thinking about given that MD anesthesia is DO friendly? If anyone can shed some light on these questions I'd be grateful.
