* Did anyone with attempts and old YOG match?

  A few months ago , I had posted a post here asking for hope if I should continue my usmle journey. People here heavily discouraged me to continue usmle. However, now since the match is out, may be I can get some hope. So, I am asking again. I first took CS and failed it. Then I took step 1 and failed it. Now I am studying for step 1 again. I graduated 7 years ago. I am not giving up. I am a US Citizen. Are there people who matched with attempts and old YOG? Please post as it will provide us with hope as we study. Thank you.

  Matched on SOAP(IM), 2001, attempt on step 1, Average scores, GC, I believe I made it using my skill which is: making friends and contacs. This has been a stressful and exhausting process. We have chosen this hard and competitive task. I wish you the best.

  @falcon1987

I matched in FM, a university-based program.Do you need a visa? You were able to get interviews in IM and Neuro which are very competitive so it means your app is ok. You might wanna reflect if you need to improve in your interview skills. Dont give up, you have good scores. Make sure to continue doing USCE, because gaps in CV is a red flag. Goodluck to you.
