Ladies and Gentlemen, I have passed Step 1!

I’d like to thank God, my parents and USMLEWorld ::sniff sniff::Okay, to be perfectly honest, I was a little disappointed with my passing score. While I did manage to break 200, I didn’t get the 220 that would’ve practically made me a shoo-in for a peds residency. According to the Charting Outcomes publication from the 2009 Match, 79% of IMGs with scores similar to mine are able to match in pediatrics, so that gives me hope. After all, I can still blow Step 2 away, right?

I was also a little embarrassed to find that on my score report, my weakest areas were cardiovascular and respiratory, since those are kinda major in the grand scheme of things, but at least path and pharm were good and for some reason, I managed to do particularly well with GI questions.

Even though I’m a smidge disappointed in myself for not being able to score higher, I am extremely relieved and grateful that I passed. I’m sooooo happy 😀
