Question Step 1 -233 good enough for internal medicine?

I will be a fresh graduate (2013)

Step 1: 233
Step 2: I'm hoping for 240+

I don't have any research but have 1 month clinical elective and 2 US LORs

Should that be good enough for a decent internal medicine program?

congratulations in the first place!
233 is great score at least above the average for most programmes for IM which is about 220.
So yes u have good chance once u are above average. So work harder in CK.
I think something unusual happened during ur exams day becos of the significant difference in ur nbme and the actual score. But all the same u have competitive score so no problem. Good luck.

hey you are saying that u have 2 LoRs from 1 month elective. if you can tell how you got those LoRs or simply what you did in the hospital to earn LoRs, it will be a really great help for us all.
