USMLE Scores 229 Step 1 for IM Residency!

Just finished basic sciences @ Ross University and just received step 1 result of 229. Not entirely too happy with it as my practices were a little higher closer to my step date. Obviously this is premature as I still have 2 years of US clinical rotations as well as the Step 2's to take. I'm wondering based on the score what my chances would be for a residency such as Internal? Any advice would be great, thanks.

Things today are so different from how they were 2 years ago, so any advice to you would be pointless. Aim to score high on CK and do your best in your rotations. If you had similar score as your step1 and CS passed, LORs, you'd have quite a few interviews. Two years ago, you'd have twice the number as this year, who knows what the situation will be in 2 years from now though. Work hard is all I can say.

Guys from SGU and ROSS are getting over 20 interviews in IM with similar scores on both step 1 and 2. So just keep up the good work and you will be fine, by the way that is a great score

I got a 229 and then a 237CK and 1st Pass CS and got 20 IV offers and went to 15 and matched at my No. 1 (I feel strongly so)

So, there is no need to worry about. I got enough IV at Univ, strong Univ/Comm and Comm. hospitals. So, just do your work and score well on CK. It's 50% important, the other 50% being Step 1.
