Its not a bad score dude. Its above average. Its a good score. Try harder for step 2 ck. I have a similar situation. 239 on step 1. But 230s are still good... may be not for the top most programs but still okay... just try to score better on step 2 ck... that's what my plan is.... don't be depressed.... your hopes of residency are very much alive step1 is just 1 step.... there are many other things.... good luck

I think it is more than a good score, and I think you will match Peds with that score if you went on that consistent level

Cheer up

According to NRMP's Charting Outcomes document, the average Step 1 score for IMGs who matched into Internal Medicine in 2014 was 229, which means you are right where you need to be!

Study hard for your Step 2 and work on your supporting documents and you can most certainly make a strong run for this year's Match.
