Sorry to hear you had a rough go with step 1.
The best advice at this point is to focus on maximizing the rest of your application going forward. Do well in your clerkships, do some away rotations at programs where you would have a shot at matching, and make time to really do well on step 2 ck.
Remember that while step 1 is very important, it is one part of a larger application. If a low step 1 is the only blemish, it shouldn't be an insurmountable problem.
