very old IMG - ranaali
#41
@Raanali and all those starting after years of graduation, am old grad >16yrs , did MPH and then just recently got my ECFMG certification. Went for observerships and externships alone leaving three young kids home. But I did all for just one reason, first if I dont do it now...I will for sure regret in my later life when I couldnt turn time around, and second if I am at peace with my heart (which I am) that I accomplished something, I am more relaxed and my whole family is happy. I applied to more than 200 prog this year. (Will share if get lucky) but all along I knew one thing...I may NOT get a residency...even then I can call myself an MD now...(thank God). Since I have a Masters in Health Admin, I have that as a back up plan. I even tried to get a prelim (one year) residency to get into public health/preventive medicine residency, that I never knew existed.
In short, I am happy to gain all the new knowledge that I did taking MLEs and am a more confident person than I used to be.
Do try it now then repent later you never did - but with an open heart and mind!!

Medicine is not for money anymore..if you are an old grad and you are doing it for money..go for teaching..contact nursing schools, PT schools, chiropractice colleges for teaching jobs..may take a course in something at college to teach.

do research or non-clinical jobs.

if it is yoru dream know it is hard..two years to complete steps, 3 years residency...if you are dreaming of this..then go for it..

do not let age or anyone stop you..but if money is only issue..other easier ways to get money...

Hang IN There-I too passed …after a Big failure
Hang in there! if it helps, I took it and failed it too on my FIRST ATTEMPT (despite blowing $6K by using PASS PGM IL- i.e., you get what you PAY for!!!)...I got a 187..so imagine the anger and disappointment I went thru when i first got the news :/. Anyway,I took out my anger by going to the park, taking walks, talking to people that really cared about me, mostly my family (of course), and they told me that I could sooo do it again, no worries and to NOT listen to the negatives...which alot of mean selfish people out there do for a living (maybe..lol). I mean all they say is "give up!, residency programs will not accept you if you failed the first time, yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah" WRONG A'HOLES! Lol. Just remember that they (most hospitals) actually need you, regardless ifyou failed the first time. They want more doctors. If you look at most residency programs which I did, some of them say, "requires you to pass the step1 at least the second or third time" So I do not know where these selfish A'Holes are getting their info from. Failing step1 is not really a big deal...I mean once you are done with it the second time hopefully, try to hold a research position or volunteer somewhere to show that you really want this despite the fact you failed it the first time.

So be strong and listen up, get rid of that feeling as fast as possible...lol,and review this stuff all over again, just remember you ALMOST passed....all you need to do is add on! that's all you need "ADD ONs" well and grasping to the material that you probably missed while studying for it the first time.

This is what I did: I used my network from Caribe friends (e.g. windsor- 85% failure rate!) and found those that got 230s on 2nd attempt. using references I found a certified personal tutor (BBB) that got me through—aided by UW questions of course!.. (cost $12k though! CALL six four one seven one five thirty nine hundred ext eight three three seven six eight FOR THEIR 24hr- INFO LINE).

Again think about it...you ALMOST passed...so that means you have a potential to get way more than passing the next time around,
anyway! THE BEST OF LUCK TO YOU! I am positive you will pass the next time!


p.s. soorrry that my words all over the place. But hope you get my point here.

Hi
Gangamstyle and Ranaali
Can u please tell us what r the chances of residency after so many years of our graduation? How did u get in MPH program? what all did u study for ur steps? That can help use too. I want to do my steps just to get my confidence back and not to repent later in life and achieve which I dreamt for all my life. I m not doing it for money.
I have faced the most horrible things in life. I just want to gain that respect back.
Thanks.
