Surgery USMLE step 1 score 232/99 and Surgical IMG residency!

Hello everyone,
I just got my results for Step 1, 232/99. I"m kind of worried, because I was going for a surgical residency. does anyone know what are my chances?...also does anyone know of a recent source for correlations between step 1 scores and residencies for IMGs?...

@dr.dhruvdesai- I didn't have a problem with immuno, it was mostly straight forward. what i thought was hard was the epidemiology...the questions in my opinion were harder than they should've been

You still have time, don't rush the exam but in fact you may start preparing and see how your score is correlating, you still have time.

Grab some US LORs. Fresh graduate, no need for visa and excellent scores you are good for any specialty.
