I applied for residency programs thrice and i couldnot match. i completed my step 3 in may 2007 (76 2nd atempt). Meanwhile i completed my MPH. i was on student visa (F1). my OPT period was over i had to return back to india in feb 2008. after that i didnot try i joined MD Gen medicine program. i am about to complete it. If i want to try again for residency, i have to give my step 1 again or is it valid.
