Unhappy chance of matching for non-US IMG with low step1 score


Anyone who has any experience or know anything about chances of matching in the states for non-US IMGs with low step 1 scores.

my score was only 81/198, but i will be doing clinical rotations in US/canada to get experience and letters from US.

I have plenty of clinical experience from norway both through working and observerships at hospitals in norway. Additionally i will work as a doctor before i start clinical electives.

Any thoughts/advice?
