  hello everyone, I didn't get any IVs, and am not at all optimistic about SOAP. please I'd like people with not so
good scores that finally matched to post their credentials here. post like this please:


YOG, step1/CK/CS/step3(if available), visa status, no of IVs, then an overview of your overall CV(like externship, observership, LOR, research ETC). also please let us know if you had an attempt next to any of the scores.

  I think the biggest difference was

1) US medical grad
2) lots of quality research - actual publications
3) did well on step 3
4) INTERVIEW - most important (first few interviews shaky but picked up steam later on in Nov/Dec)
