Default What is considered a good USMLE Step 1 score?

Hey guys!
What do you think is a good passing score on step 1?
I am an IMG from Germany and I just took the exam (2 days ago). It was a bit harder than expected, especially the first couple of blocks - there were several totally crazy questions, which almost threw me out of balance, but after the 3rd block or so it got considerably better. Im pretty nervous about my score/can't think about anything else atm. Though Im sure I passed the exam, the real question is how high/low the score is gonna be.

So, back to the question. What do you think would be a competitive score for matching a surgical residency? I am aware that there are many other factors that need to be considered like the step 2 score, clinical experience in the US, research/publications etc, but from what I've heard so far step 1 score IS the main thing.
