Congrats ! It's a standard score.

It's about 3 months or more since the Scoring system is changed.
So don't pay attention to the 2 digit score, only 3 digit score matters.
It's a normal score, if you add good CK score and pass CS on the first attempt you can be pretty competitive for IM, Peds, Neuro, EM, and so on.

Yep, they don't send the 2-digit scores to the program directors. The PDs won't see it. The only purpose it serves now is just to inform you and the state board that you've passed and that you're above 75.

Anything above 220 is a real good score

Its a pretty good score.. Good job!
But... Depending on what you want to specialize in you might need to do better in Step 2.
