The following post is my message to my fellow USMLE aspirants who are afraid of uncertainties in their way


Yes, the competition is getting tougher n yes the exam is too… but neither competition nor difficult exam can stop you from achieving your dreams… but your attitude… be mature and stop complaining… if things are tough, stand up and take the responsibility to act tougher and get to the top… you got to prove yourself worthy of living that dream… and don’t let anyone tell you wat you cannot do… u will decide your fate…

And out of curiosity… although I won’t go deep into it… I just don’t agree with people saying getting very high score can affect your chances negatively. Without making any prejudices, just looking at last year stats, two interesting facts come up… one, the matching rate rise linearly with step scores… that means more you score, the higher chances you got to get matched… Second, even for those who scored above 260+ in steps, the matching rate wasn’t 100%.. which proves that scores aren’t the only criteria for selection.. so get your best score you can… but even after that you got to work on your profile and be your best…

Don’t think that if you get above 260 you will surely get matched… but yes… chances will increase with anything you do… higher scores, more strong LORs, more USCE, publications, research etc… everything you do will get you inch closer to your dream… but in the end… it will be your attitude which will be the biggest factor… your presence of mind… your personality… how you present yourself as a whole package… Best of luck mates… together we will all achieve our dreams… but that will be without competing with each other… but actually helping each other…
