Congrats !
I personally don't think that 221 is a decent score !
do the best for CK !
in my opinion you can get Internal medicine or neurology residency.... and so on.
don't be desperate ! enjoy the fact that you're done with this !

Check this !
I wish you luck !
I'd say that 221 is not a decent score, in fact it's standard score in usmle step I.
let's see what other memebers will say.

Would you share your exam experience?

Default hi

Please dont kill yourself over yourscore now,people are with attemps are matching!! You also hear stories that people with double 99 with old score dont match.
Try your best on CK!!!

Can you share your NBME scores please?

Thank you, just enjoy.

yep, the exam is getting harder year by year, but your score is at least the national average, so it isn't bad... good luck for step2!

How do you feel about the similarity between the real exam and USMLE world and NMBEs? What woud you do to improve the score if you could do it once again?
