Default Emergency medicine and IMG - please help

Hello all. I got my USMLE step 1 results back yesterday, and got a 228. It is 8-10 points less than my NMBE and UWORLD average. I am disappointed in myself.

I wanted to go to Emergency Medicine residency, but I don't think that is possible now. Can I make it into a decent Internal Medicine programme with this score, and end up with Emergency Medicine fellowship? Or, if I get a very good step 2 score, can I somehow make up for the bad step 1 score and get an Emergency Medicine residency?

Is all hopes shattered?

Thanks in advance for your help
