Its not the end of the world.

From experience, programs consider it a good score if you get a good jump on your CK score..

IM programs I have interviewed at have complimented that my scores were good. Which I initially thought was odd. Maybe they missed my borderline step1 score.. It's possible they were talking about the jump in CK when they say that it's "good".

So if you have a less than ideal step1, move on. Learn from what you think you did wrong and use the lesson to work for a 250+ NBME and UWSA. More NBMEs = better. Consider the money spent on NBMEs as investment.

I am also trying to get into residency... I took all 3 exams this year.. March for step1, august ck, sept for CS.. I dont have a lot of interviews so I am uncertain if I can match.. Keeping my fingers crossed (hoping & praying)

The entire match is very competitive, one community hosp I interviewed at had 6000 applicants for 10 categoricals.. I did not apply to univ hospitals... Its hard to fit in the criterias even for community hospitals for me.

still whatever interviews you got, u have a chance at them. m sure you will match, if you do please share the experience. By the way, what do you mean by hard to fit into criteria?? is it becoz of your year of graduation or something else?

Cant fit coz of:
1. Year of grad cut off
2. USCE required / must. (I apply if they use the word prefer).
3. Must have 230+ step1 (usually also required by hospitals that have strict YOG cut off)..

Usually those.
