honestly, your chances are slim. you score step 1 score is so-so. but failing both CK and CS are the biggest mistakes you could ever commit it's a grave sin to fail one step part, more so to fail 2 step parts. i'm sorry to tell you this but this is the sad reality.

AMA says residency position is not a right. It is privilege that med grads and more so IMGs have to compete for

FM is now even more competitive that psy...but your chances in both are slim. nevertheless, i believe there is nothing impossible in this world...if you're really determined to pursue you US dream, make sure you do a lot of quality USCE and publications to boost your application. Needless to say, take your step 3 before applying but make sure you get high scores in your second attempts in CK and a high score on first attempt in 3, and of course pass CS on 2nd attempt.

Man that is harsh. But yeah failing an exam is pretty much like committing suicide at this time. Even worse than a criminal record. Don't mean to discourage anybody but that's the reality unfortunately.
