Question Failed the CS, do I have a chance!

step 1 - 222/93
step 2CK - 241/99
** CS - failed (scheduled to retake in 4 weeks). **

2 LoRs from PDs in IM
2 LoRs from department chairs in IM sub-specialities
2 major publications in peer reviewed journals (2nd author)

applying September 1st for internal med.

any ideas if I will get any interviews with such stats and a pending CS passing score, given that the failed CS will still be on the transcript???
or should i wait for a passing score???

should i apply for FM just in case?

Yes, apply to FM and psych and peds
Your chances are low compared to the thousands others who passed the CS from the first attempt.

Also try to get connections in residency programs, let them see your file without filtering.
