Listening What are my chances? I need an honest opinion.

I passed step 1--> 204 (first attempt)
passed step 2 cs --> first attempt
passed step 2 ck--> 217 (on third attempt due to death of a family member)

I am applying for family medicine. Can anyone give me any advise or tips.

Thanks guys

I did all my rotations in US and I am a US citizen. Do you think that would help in anyway. Thanks again for any advise

I know a carrib IMG, all rotations in the US, US citizen, low scores, but no attempts. Great personality. He got lots interviews, but he did not match. He is applying for the 3rd time this year.

Low step 1 score and 3 attempts at CK? You'll need a really strong "backer". Try hospitals in depressed areas. Even then, you might still need connections.
