Question Competitive Residency programs with step1 229/99 ???

Hey guys, i still have some time before applying for residency, but wud like to know wat are some competitive residency programs i can apply to with a low step1 99 (229) other than like family, psychiatry, pediatrics, internal medicine.

I am a U.S. citizen and a graduate from a Carribean med school. I just got done with my step 1 and will be starting my clinical rotations in the U.S.

btw i just got my score last week and was kinda upset because my nbme7 predicted 251 and UWSA1 predicted 248. I missed out on scoring a high 99 to be part of the competitive residency fields.
Now how much wud a high step2 ck score help?

Thanks in advance.
