Question Wether to update or not on step 3 score??

Got my Step 3 score just yesterday. I was quiet sure i didn't make it as it didn't go well, but luckily i passed it. Score 218. That is also the reason i kept my Transcript not to update automatically to programs. So my overall credentials 231/252/CS passed first attempt/218, YOG 2008, 2 months USCE,Need Visa and applied 126 Im programs.
So my question is SHould i update the programs on my step 3 score or not, esp. it being low???

What score is considered OK for step 3??

If yes, how can I send my step 3 scores to Programs??

Thank you all and Good luck.

Average score of AMGs is 217 and any score equal or greater is considered good.Last year till September 30 score of 215 was equal to 90 on 2 digits.Therefore your score is considered great.
The only way you can let them know is by email,but that does not guarantee that they will look into your mail.Hope this helps.

I just saw the option of updating your Trnascript in ERAS and i did that..But unfortunately later I saw that ECFMG has not updated my CSA score in my Oasis account. I never had problem with score update form ECFMG earlier. What wrong here??
