I'll be brutally honest, very, very low. Your step 2 sunk you.

If you look, there's a guy that only matched PRELIM SURGERY (seen as dead end road) and he had step scores >250.

I'm that guy and it's not *always* dead-end road, depending where you match and how hard you work. The program I matched at has numerous IMGs as senior surgical residents who are now beginning fellowships at prestigious university programs. It all comes down to how bad you want it and how much you're willing to work for it.
