Hey there @mnsri

We are almost in a same boat, my 1st time perfirmance was not good either. As I have not yet completed my exam, I dont know what to suggest. I Personally did UW 2nd time, still has some wrong ones and now doing the wrong ones, its boring and I almost memorzed some q's but its helping me. I also find reading is as important as doing q's, maybe more important. So I am reading and doiung q's.... smiling face

Good luck my friend!

Hi I am here to give some motivation to everyone who is struggling or some friends I already know from the forum.

My update is: I took my CK on April 2014 and got 234, not 269. But I did it and completed it without postponing it. And gave my CS on June 2014 (I didn't have a date at first, but I used chack4change from Mozilla Firefox and got a date) and passed on my first attempt.

In the meantime I managed to find observership and had 4 mo of USCE (it was not everyday, 2-3 times/week at most, but the attending allowed me to write it as full time), got 3 strong LOR from US physicians, nothing from my home country. Got my ECFMG certificate just by September and applied on September 16th. (Because ERAS crashed this year on September 15th)

Got my first IV on late October, got 4 IV's in total, here and there ( I applied to 120+ categorical IM programs)

And....... its not whole bunch of Interview but guess what??? Yesterday I found out that I am matched!!!!!!!!

My background is: I was a working mom with 1 yo daughter when I first started, then had lots of changes and struggles in between. Decided to give up and packed all my books and have put them away for a while, then decided to go for it again. There were lots of ups and down days, lots of sleepless nights, tears, the day seemed so dark and the end of the tunnel seemed too far and even couldn't see that at first. Also, tot be honest, occasionally it seemed too unrealistic for me to complete ( I had huge language barrier).

But, I learned my lesson.
It was worth in the end to "live a non-human being life" for a long time....

My advice is:
For any of you, who is not really sure about whether or not fight for it, just make a decision right now and go for it. Don't waste any of your precious time!!!!!

If you decided to go through this, just forget everything and just live within this "beast", think about it everyday and night....... and complete the steps as soon as possible.
Also, be nice with people you know or people you meet, you will never know who you can meet in the elevator and who can give you enormous opportunities. And don't afraid to ask anyone to help.

And most importantly, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Imagine that you are having the best score you are wishing-- imagine how you will act. Imagine that you are getting an opportunity to do observership in a university setting, imagine as if you already have those.... and imagine, you are matched and imagine how you will act if you really are matched. It might sound stupid, but this is how things worked for me.

This FRIDAY, I will know where I matched.
From end of June, I will start working as a internal medicine resident in a hospital.
My dream finally came true.
I wish yours will come soon too!

Best wished, don't waste your time, work smart not only hard, be a nice person and luck and everything else shall follow.

Best of Luck everyone smiling face
