Default New to the forum--- help/guidance for step 1.

I am new to this forum.
I haven't been in touch with anyone off late and I am not sure how the exam works after it changed from 322 to 308 this summer. I would like to ask for help from recent step 1 takers.
I have already extended my step 1 triad. It expires on 31st december.
I am aiming for a 250+. But my scores are not good enough on practice exams
I have finished Uworld.
And took UWSA1 today, scored 244. But everyone says it is an over predictor. Does that mean I am in the 230 bracket on the NBME?
How should I approach it? Should I pick a date in november or december? I really wanted to take the exam in november. I am running out of time for the match of 2017. Still need to do CK and CS and do externships!

Thanking you in anticipation.
