So I know there has been a lot of discussion but I am still a little confused and would appreciate any up to date advice, especially from some of those that may not have published their step 2 CK.
If one had a very competitive step 1 score (265+) and did not want to hurt their chances by going down on step 2, it sounds like the consensus is not to take step 2. That said, I was looking at the Freida site and a few programs (NYU, Hofstra LIJ/Northwell) that say in order for interview consideration they require a step 2 (with a cutoff). Is this website accurate?
Also, a few people (not urology) said that many schools won't rank you unless you have a step 2 score submitted.
Would it be foolish to risk this chance by taking Step 2 CK for instance in December or even January after the rank lists are submitted?
Any advice or clarification on this would be greatly appreciated!
