Default Low Step 1 Score, Chances for Residency?

I got a 195 on my Step 1 exam.. I'm totally surprised and devastated. Don't know if it would've been better to just fail

What can I do now to be a good candidate for the Residency Match? What are my chances? For those of you who have been in my position before, what do you advise? At this point I'm literally fine with any specialty. I'm a US IMG btw. Graduated recently.
