I know people with lower scores match to IM each year but their two digit score is around 81-85. This year the PD filters will be different based on the 3 digit scores only, so it will be unpredictable. Don't give up so easy, no thing is over yet. My advice to you is just to prevent a negative match. I think you are a strong applicant "DESPITE" your step 1 score which is partialy coved by your CV. I advice you to do a very wide application when the match season comes in IM and FM.
