come on now , who is putting lies in your head ? i have 2 friends with scores below 210 in step 1 and step 2 and they both matched with IM and FM . yes not from the first time but with second time after doing a lot of work . my friend study hard for step 2 . aim for 240 plus . this will hugely increase your chances , bc if you score high in step 2; the program directors understand that you were having bad test day. keep believing nothing is irreversible . work hard . want the residency more than anything and i believe you will get it . DO NOT listen to negative people . i am not giving you a false hope , your case is never a lost deal , keep trying

Default I agree with Bigmass

If it is the first attempt then you have a good chance to get a good residency...go ahead for step 2 and have a good luck...

210 is not a good score at all. But i don't think you have any way to back/stop.So the choice is simple: keep Going and finish them all.. BEST!
