Unhappy Step 1 228

Hi, everybody! I am a medical student in Turkey. I got 228 in step 1. I learned it today. It is low score for IMG. I did one research internship in NIH and now Im doing my second research internship in NIH. Unfortunately i dont have any publication yet. I try to arrange clerkships in America. I am planing to get higher scores in next Usmle. But still I am pretty worried about my chance for residency. I want to get advice the people like me who matched in residency program. Or any comment is appreciated. Thank you very much

Read this post and rethink your chance of matching

Anyone matched with low scores in one step?
