Well, I have no US clinical experience, so thats a huge drawback. I still have CS too. I am planning on matching at a Uni program, so that will be challenging.


I'm sure you'll be fine. I know people with lower scores than yours who matched into university programs with no USCE. If you're a fresh grad then you're still in good shape for this year.


congrats!!grin Good luck for the cssmiling faceam sure, u gonna rocksmiling face

Honestly there is not much to say. I used UW and FA just like everyone else. If you hate FA you could do MTB. I hate Kaplan, so I went with FA. hehe I doubt it will make much difference. Always do Qs in mixed/timed/ unused 44 blocks. Always online. Take the UWSA. Read all explanations. Very basic preparation. Nothing over the top. Try to look things up online every once in a while. Uptodate, USPTFS, CDC, medscape, or wikipedia or medstudy series. Nothing too serious. Just make sure the info you are reading is up to date. Cuz most books have been written many years ago. And CK intentionally asks a few "new" things. Most Qs are covered in UW and FA. Of course not all of them are. For the brand new questions asking about things you have never heard of, you usually need to use your common sense and extrapolate from basic concepts that you already know.


Thankyou so muchsmiling face
