Help What are my chances of matching in Pediatrics?

I received my step 2 CK score yesterday. Its an abysmal 230
I didn't expect a score in 260s or 270s coz it was a genuinely difficult exam. But I got 250 in my USWA so I did expect a 240 at least!
What are my chances of matching in Pediatrics this year?
I'm worried sick.
I don't know anyone who's matched in Pediatrics as almost all the people I know went for IM. I have no idea whats the profile of the average applicant who matches in Pediatrics.
Please help me out :sorry:

My advice to you would be - take step 3 in order for you to get h1b.

U ll more than fine for matching.
