Correct Answer Giving up is last resort

Please check the link below and see what Sabio and Kaplan say about this issue.Scores do matter but Doc.mav too has average score in step1.
I think @Steptaker or Sabio can tell more about your position precisely.I feel giving up is the last resort when you run out of resources and your will power.All the best.Keep trying hard and get good USCE etc.
12 Years since graduation, do I have a chance
