P.S. Although we have given only 3 points for USMLE scores >95, this is the most crucial part of application to residency programs that is within your control. Most university programs do not give out interview offers for those with scores <92-95, which means that you will be competing only with applicants who have excellent scores in a given program. So aim for 99/99 for steps, which will make things a lot easy for you and us! For those that do not manage to score high, please make sure that you apply early to as many community based programs as possible and try to improve your CV with outstanding letters of recommendation and electives/externships.
