The two questions you are going to have to answer are why did you fail 2cs and why did your score go down on 2ck. Unless you have an SLOE or two you can pretty much rule out emergency medicine. For neurology you will have to demonstrate some interest in the field for interviews. You stand a shot at IM, but you are going to have to thoroughly research where to apply. Good luck

If you can show interest in Neuro or apply broadly to IM you've got a shot. EM might be a little tough but with the CS failure the best thing you can do is show dedication and commitment to the field you are applying to. Good luck
