Question 191...should I just give up!

Got my score today.
191.. I guess I should just stop this journey here. Is there any point of even giving step 2 and trying for a residency with such a low score? I dun mind psych also but is it worth a shot or shud I just give up my dream of working in the US.

I can understand your situation..but i would suggest you not to give up..There is no hard and fast rule to get a residency.I have heard about some people just getting 75% (just pass) and getting a residency..But besides score,externships ,observerships,publications make your CV strong.So try to get them & get a good score in step 2 & pass CS in first attempt..Thats all.
All the best for your future steps.
