Unhappy low ck high step 1

Hey folks, help me out.

I got a 240 on my step 1 and a 209 on step 2 ck... I couldn't believe it myself.
I want IM... Have one good US LOR (4 wks hands on) and will get a 4-week observership (both in IM).
Graduate date: 2012. One publication about to come out (1st author). Need visa. CS passed 1st time.

To anyone that has been through a similar situation... how are my chances of getting interviews? what about matching??

Please people I'm so depressed... haven't found anyone with this situation on the internet which is scaring me a lot.

The point is u still have a chance so stop stressing urself with this vigorous search. What worked for A may not necessarily work for B.
I would advice u concentrate on other important things that would boost ur credential.
It has happened already. The good news is that u aced step 1. U didn't fail CK.
So chill up friend. Some failed both and some got low scores bilaterally.

Good luck in the match!
