Yes, I would definitely like some updated info on this topic as well. I just got my step 1 score back, mid-230s, a little disappointed, feel like I've left myself an uphill battle. What's the latest on step 1 expectations/standards at ortho residencies?

I'm not sure about the average I've heard it's still hanging around 240 but that's all hearsay since there's nowhere to get concrete data on that for this year.

As far as cutoffs go check out Freida, it will give you a good idea. Most programs are 220-230 cutoffs and a bunch of programs just increased theirs so who knows if there will be another increase next year or not.

I know the step scores are fresh for you guys but my advice would be to try not to obsess about it too much. If you're going to apply ortho just make the commitment and put step 1 behind you. It'll allow you to relax and do well in 3rd year and make you a much more enjoyable person to be around.

as above, not much you can do about it now, average match is definitely around the 240 range, highest cut off I've personally seen during application was 230 I think but to be honest most of this information is not shared. Only real hard number I can give you is that the average step 1 for my intern class was >250 for what it's worth.

Hey could you message me? I am applying with the lower STEP score and am trying to figure out programs that aren't as held up on STEP1, especially considering my STEP2 far surpasses most programs STEP2 cut off (of the few that I've found have one).
