According to this thread: http://www.usmle-forums.com/residenc...specialty.html, the score range for general surgery is 208 to 223. But for other special surgery specialties, the minimum scores are higher than yours.

Default General Surgery Matching

In 2011, the average Step 1 matching score for non_US was 227, the average score for non-matchers was 219. The scores for Step 2 were 232 and 222 respectively. The non-US match rate was about 27%. So, only about 1 out of 4 non-US Grads. managed to get a Surgery match.

You could have below average and match, I suppose, but it would be unusual.

US Grad rates were about 80% matched.
