Thumbs Up regarding low scores

I have read of many cases on usmle forums where the student has scored less than their goal on step 1 but through passing cs and step 2 and sometimes even step 3, and doing research and not actually giving up but by being realistic of their options, like going for programs that they are more likely to match, they actually do match.

Just today on another forum I read the story of someone who had failed step 1 and step cs and retook the exams and passed, and matched, this person did have research experience and that can help. I read a blog of someone who got passing marks on step 1, but did better in step 2, and matched. I think matching is a matter of hard work, persistence, luck and having realistic goals. I have not given the step 1 yet so any advice on how to prepare will be helpful to me and others. Thank you and all the best in the future.

Dude, relax!
You had a 223! You ought to be happy. If you perform well in CS and CK, you will definitely land a few interviews.
