If you look through the match 2014 thread or whatever i remember reading a post from someone who failed step 1 and subsequently matched.

Its hard but not impossible, and you will be limited to IMG dependent community programs only most likely. There are lots of threads previously covering the subject and things you can do to improve your chances. General themes involve aiming for a >250 on step 2ck, passing cs first time, getting decent USCE, and strong LORs.
