Default Is 243 in Step 1 good enough?

Hi guys! I was wondering if 243 in Step one is good enough to get into Internal Medicine. I've been hearing rumors about how its getting harder for Non-US students, hence the question. Thanks!

Lol! Thanks guys. I guess i was just disappointed because I was hoping for more.

About the prep. I did the usual. Kaplan books+videos+Goljan followed by Uworld and First aid for 2months. Then revised Uworld. Then First Aid followed by First Aid and more First Aid. And two NBME(16,17) along the way.

My major take away was should've concentrated more on Ethics and Biostats. Thats where i lost a lot of marks. Hope this helps!
