220 is a decent score, but its not spectacular enough to make you stand out. Visa status will be important, so will a good step 2ck score and cs with only 1 attempt. Getting letters of recommendation from within the specialty and showing interest in the field helps too. If you have these things plus USCE you got a shot. Good luck

I need a visa, and will do USCE i find it very expensive though, will 1 month of USCE be enough?
will do my best to get a great score on step 2 ck and pass Cs just 1 attemp!
thanks a lot for the response

One month is better than nothing. Make sure you work hard and get a letter out of it, otherwise it's a waste of time. Good luck
