Warning! Usmle score& chances of match

hi, guys, I need some help! I am an international medical student who will graduate in 2017. I have just passed Usmle step1 test with a score of 233, much lower than I expected. The matching for IMG is getting more and more challenging now so I wonder if there still a chance that I can be successfully matched. I want to apply for the 2018 internal medicine residency program, and what else can I do now. Is score the most important factor related to matching chances? Is CK score much important or less? Thank you!

its a complete package.. but at the moment you should concentrate on getting 250+ on CK and finish CS.. if you are planing to take a year break, make sure you plan your step3 during this time. Try to get good LOR's and apply to big number like 200+ IM programs.
