Unhappy Low Step 1 Score - 216

Hi all...
I am a student, and took my exam in last year of medical school...
I received my score recently 216... i am too depressed about it.. thought US to be really good... and now i feel like going back to my home country...

I have always helped people around me figure out USMLE... forums and everywhere.. and this is what I did myself..

I have 3 electives.. in good university hosps... 1 in pediatric superspec., and 2 in medicine superspec. I hope these guys give me good LORS....
My cv has 3 indexed publications, 3 conference presentations and 2 months of research experience from my home country...

I am yet to take CS and CK... however, I dont feel like going any further...

I always wanted a residency in IM/Peds...

Is there any chance?
Should i rethink my usmle decision and go back to my home country and take the PG exam there?

Please help me.. shall remember you in my prayers..

There is always a shot !!! Residency is package deal. And you have an amazing start with rotations and publications. I would not back down.
The truth is you might have to wait a while thats the only down side .. but i think if you can pull up your step 2 score then you have a shot .
