Despite Steps 1 and 2-CK failures I upgraded my application through Step 3 and got a noncompetitive residency position

into google search and it is the highest (top 1 or 2) Blog spot RESULT

a comprehensive listing of ratings of all of the major live usmle courses
first finish step 3!-(get greater than 85 with no attempts; i.e., ALL IMG Friendly programs/externship directors- they have spoken to me personally and discuss this at the annual residency directors' meetings- NOW REQUIRE THIS PASSAGE AS A REQUIREMENT EVEN THOUGH THEY MAY NOT STATE THIS SPECIFICALLY; essentially -especially in the IMG friendly programs- too many low step 1 and step 2 scoring residents are unable to pass step 3. in most programs now they will not even let the resident graduate past PGY-2 without step 3 passage. then this failing resident becomes a liability for the program director and creates difficulties in filling the residency spots; also this person cannot even get a medical license so that he or she cannot serve to moonlight in the hospital ER at times of house staff shortage )
