I had one friend who is still doing his Neurosurgery. I do not know his scores on the steps, but this is what he did:
Did 4 yrs of Gen surgery before he got into a Neuro Surgery program: After 3 yrs, he had to go back because of expiry of J1.
Finished 2 yrs waiver in India and he came back to US, did 3 more yrs of Gen Surgery, meanwhile he got his GC under EB-1 cateogory and finally got into a NeuroSurgery program. Now he is PGY-4 in neuro surgery prgram.
He was exceptionally brilliant and very very focused and did not give up hope. I would have quit long back. But hey- I am done with my FP residency and have a good lifestyle as a Private Practioner for the last 4 yrs.....
