Idea! Transitional Year

Hi... Im not very confident about my scores. I got 215/205 and a pass in CS. All first attempt. I would like to get in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine but I think with my mediocre scores I will get bumped. So I was thinking of doing a TRansitional year. What are my chances of getting in? I think if I have a transitional year I can match again with a better chance in IM or FM.

Getting into a transitional year is not easier than getting into IM or FM!
