Your Step 1 score is average, but a high Step 2 CK score will greatly increase your chances. That being said, there are too many other factors to consider when calculating a residency candidate's chances.

Some of these other factors are:
  • Do you have any US clinical experience?
  • Do you need a visa?
  • How long have you been out of medical school?
  • What specialties are you thinking about?

You will need to answer these questions to get a better idea of your chances.
