your scores are decent enough. I know some of my friends doing residency with similar scores. Your 4 lor and research publication are boost to your application and with step 3 in hand you will have greater chances.

What were the scores of your seniors and friends?
May be there application had some thing missing

Its freaking to hear that
Man its so frustrating to say that even 99 is not a surety of ur residency
If thats the case May be they did not apply to maximum programs i.e. including community as well !!!!!!!!!!
