Default Step 1 <200 next steps

I got less than 200 score in Step 1. I am trying to work hard and get at least 240 in Step 2 CK. I have already cleared Step 2 CS. I am aiming for IM. Is it possible to get residency with above profile? Please advice.

Thanks,
Resi

You need a good jump on ck and a decent step 3 score. That might explain that the step 1 score was an anamoly. A low step 1 score might affect your interview chances but if you score well in other steps you might have a chance. Good luck

That is not a good score obviously but try to ace your step 2 and step 3 test. Get a good score and a pair of good letter of recommendation. Everything counts. Good luck.
