Unhappy Depressed because of low chances

I have attempt on CS exam and graduate of 2011 with step 1 235/99 and step 2 ck 251/99 with observership of around 10 months and i am planning to give step 3 but my NBME score is only 190, I have green card, no need of visa, do you think that i should go for step 3 this year or i should try this year without step 3 and if unfortunately if i am not able to get in match this year then with step 3 next year, i am really confused and depressed..that attempt in cs make me so much worried

If not, then you are in OK shape.

Don't fret too much about Step 3, for now.

Make sure you get the best LOR's you can.

Have an outstanding personal statement.

Can I ask you where your medical education was?
