“matriculated from Ross University this year and have taken Step 1 and scored in the 88/212 but I did not score well on Step 2 76/186. So as of right now I am primarily studying for Step 3 to try and rectify the situation and possibly take it at the end of this year. Besides from that what else can I do to increase my chances of acquiring a residency spot in Internal Medicine this upcoming application period? How can I convey to the residency programs that I will be a good fit for them?”
You are correct to try to use step 3 to correct the impression of you. This is Very,very,very difficult since you need to get an interview in order to show yourself.and it is very hard to get an interview if you have not gotten the right grade.
The other thing is to spend time at a place that is possible for you to get into for a residency. Are there any places that really liked you when you rotated there?
Just remember, there is no point in spending time at a place that will NEVER accept you!
