hi ashB, i have a query regarding booking a slot.i need to book a slot for dec-jan-feb. but in iwa the slots are upto dec i.e. oct-nov-dec.when can i book for my slot. kindly reply me.

I guess, for eligibility periods ending in 2008 you have to use 2008 application materials which will be available on ECFMG website only after September 13th.

Relax.. It said about the saved application's expiry period. You can start a new application any time you want. Not a problem. 2008 application materials will be available starting Septmber 13th. Then you can take a Jan-March slot.

I guess you mean 28/50. In that case its a bit low and doesn't predict too well for your score. Try NBME's self assessment to get the most accurate picture.

And based on your performance profile on NBME and also on UW, work on the areas you are weak on.

Good luck! icon_smile.gif

how long to prepare for usmale step 1?
hi i was thinking of joining the kaplan course in india in nov to prepare for usmle step 1. does you have any idea what minimum amount of time is required to prepare before i appear for the exam? (ie when is the earliest i can take a date for the exam?) im not going to be working either. or is there a better way to prepare for the exam? (ie first aid books n usmle world subscription) but i've heard kaplan is the best.

I'd suggest give ECFMG a call regarding credit transfer issue. They would give you the most reliable info.

You can do a surgical fellowship similar to medical ones. Find out fellowship programs you are interested in and visit their individual websites to know the application procedure.

1. No you can't retake it for 7 years
2. No show means you'll have to apply again and pay a new fees.
3. You can extend it only once. After that you have to apply again.

Danan i think, it doesn't come under transfer of credits but i don't have any solid info on that. Some others here also have the same problem. My advise would be to call up ECFMG. That would be the best, they are pretty helpful.

thanks,

I'm sorry to know about your spine surgery. Hope you are doing well now. A score of 77 doesn't mean the end of your US dream though the path will certainly be tough. Remember, there are many things apart from scores that you can do to better your chances like USCE, US LORs, Research, timing of application, contacts etc. Just study those factors and act and apply wisely. Score well in Step2CK. Don't be scared, people in similar situation like yours have managed to get a residency in US. Read the '76 in Step1' thread for similar discussion. Just don't lose hope and focus and try to get as many other things right as you can. Your husband can help you in many of these aspects too.

My best wishes for you.

You can call me 'AshB'.

Your ECFMG status report that is sent to the programs when you apply does indicate the number of attempts. But I feel if you can pull through a good score in second attempt, comparable to Step1, it could nullify the effect of an extra attempt. And as a general rule get all other factors right. I know people who have got residency even with 2 attempts on both the steps.
