Unhappy Got my score 206/85 am I totally screwed?

Hello guys I took my exam May 23 and waited 2 months due to the delay to get my score. I did DIT 2011 2X, read FA 4 times, did most of the kaplan 2011 videos, BRS physio, Lipincott Biochem, Goljan+audio, UW with 61% avg and took five NBME's and 2 UW assesments. My NBME 7 score was 214 3wks before the exam. My girlfriend of 6yrs broke up with me right before my test and I didnt want to postpone it so I did my best to focus and took the test. I was very anxious during the test and felt like I could have done better. Not trying to make excuses but I feel terrible now because I got 206/85.

I want to know if I am totally screwed or can I still have a shot at matching. I wanted Internal med. I know I have to do well on Step 2 but not sure what is considered doable and good for me to be able to stay in the running for a match. I appreciate your advice. Thanks!

Buddy! So much other than your score goes into whether we make it or not. Have a friend who is a nephrologist that got 86 and subspecialised in Washington University St. Louis. Keep going and finish what you started. The rest is up to God.

You can end up in Pshy / Pedi / even IM.. do your research after you focus on the Step 2 ... pretty much you will get more than 90+... which both score will be great...

Be Happy and Thank God.
