Unhappy Scored 209

hello everybody,

my usmle step 1 score is 79/209, I got my score last week and I have being depressed for whole week.

I have some question:

1. what's the meaning of my score? does 209 correlate with 79 at all?
2. do I have any chance to get into normal residency program?

thank u all.

Hi, you still have chances, try your best to get above 90-95 on step 2ck. Try to do as much observerships as you can to get US LORs.

2 digit scores don't matter anymore, unless PDs make it their option.

Don't quit! U have come this far. You can still try to do it. Just try to do extremely well in Step 2. And get good LORs and if you can get all the other things that the residency might look at (research,etc).
