  @desirable 6 IV is a good number. You should work on your IV skills, I think
Good luck

  Nobody looks at that exam, never. The relevant are step 1 and CK.

  Yes, everyone can pass that exam, even a high school student with some training. If someone fail the test its not because of poor medical knowledge, its more a matter of practice and be good in dramatic arts.

  a high school student cannot pass, you still need knowledge of all diseases and treatments.

any 2nd attempt is always looked at, it does matter-stop giving false information


since you guys cannot over come needing a visa, you are still getting interviews

I would spend a lot of time working on interview skills

  @desirable

did you pass all exams on 1st attempt?
when did you graduate?
do you need a visa?

overall you look like a pretty solid candiate except a lower than average step 1 score which you made up with USCE and research and passed step 3

there must be something your are not saying to not match in 3 cycles now

main things are

are you applying broadly?
you are getting invetviews so maybe thats where your problem is
