Hi, does anyone know how late interview dates go in to December? Are they usually over by Christmas? Thanks!

Well.... Just got my Step 1 score back earlier this month and I am completely devastated. I scored between 20 and 30 points below what my practice tests had predicted. ball just didn't bounce my way. My preclinical grades were all high passes, no honors which are given to no more than 10 out of the 200 people in my med school class. I was very interested in urology for a lot of reasons, and had gone as far as to meet with a faculty urologist during 2nd year to ask him if I should get into research, etc, but he said just to focus on step 1.

I know there are a bunch of Step 2 CK threads out there, but I wanted to see what people thought would be a better scenario. Background info: Step 1 score high 240s, taking Step 2 CK tomorrow, last NBME practice test 4 days ago was in the low 240s.
1 - take the test tomorrow, hopefully get a similar score to Step 1, and have scores available for review to programs

I was looking through previous threads and the educational resources section of the site but thought I'd toss this out there. I drew my electives to start out M3 year and start w/ 4 weeks of uro here in a week--was wondering if anyone had text suggestions (or if that's even recommended at all). I ranked uro #1 for the elective lottery and think I am pretty interested, so I'd really like to do well despite this being my first rotation. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I couldn't find any old threads from students who might have done an elective at U of L. Has anyone here done one and is willing to share info on schedule, housing.. etc? Thank you.

Thinking about urology, but have an interest that lies mainly in andrology and male infertility.
Does this look bad when applying?
Are these fellowships competitive and/or highly sought after?

Does anyone have any advice about publishing Urology case reports? Oddly enough, most Urology case report journals seem to be open access / require an author payment to publish.
Does anyone have any advice / know of any good journals to submit a urology case report that is not open access? Thank you!

I'm a IMG. I'm currently doing residency in Urology in my country, I'm in 3 rd year. I was also doing my steps at same time. I did 235 on step 1 and 230 on my step 2. I have 2 podiums presented on the national meeting of urology society of my country. I'm definitively finishing here my resisdency but then obviously I want to match in any program in USA. I want to know how do you see my possibilities and what kind of suggestions do you have

For those of us who are reapplying to next year's app cycle, are there any programs that refuse/prefer not to interview/accept reapplicants regardless of improvement to their application. The cost of applying was a lot and I imagine reapplying will cost almost double. I'd like to be able to skip applying to programs that won't even look at my application.
