Hi everyone!
this seems like an awesome common ground where like"minded" people can share their thots! So am jus sharing my concerns about the scores.....
So when does it boil down to scores??? I guess thats the inclusion /exclusion criteria for lots of programs....so was just wondering what can make programs look beyond scores ....??? is it research experience?? if so what kind of research experiences?? does that mean you have to have publications? or associated with well known university? and how effective are private externships and observerships in a psychiatrist's office???
Am applying for the 09 with hopes galore ......no great creds either...scores in the 80s not done s3 ...private practice observership for 6 months! But really want to match sooooooo bad!
good luck to every1 here!

oh yeah! /.....was also wondering that some univ programs do post that scores shud be above 78...do such univ progs even send calls to pple with low avg scores when they do receive loads of applications with above 90 scores?
does it make sense to waste the hard earned Rs converted to $$$$ over these univ programs for someone like me with real average scores in the 80s??????

Am still doing my extenship in a private clinic, i believ i will be there till oct or Nov, i kn that score is not the most impt in psy, if u av research experience, externship,and also do step 3 wt good personal statement, it will increase ur chance, but the most impt surety for ur chance to match in 2009 is GOD,whether u av low score or not.

U av a good credentials,all u need now is ur CS,and of course a US LOR, i think they cherish a LOR from USA, than from ur country, the truth is they do not kn the doctors in ur country,except if the doctor is an international doctor, i mean,recognized internationally.Put all u've got into it, do step 2cs, and trust in God, i had to take my step 2 cs d 2nd time too, now am awaiting the result, i am strongly believing God for success, and i will advice u to do d same.All d best my friend
