Default How good or bad is 244 on step 1?

I got my score today. Disappointed as I was aiming for 250.. especially because I am an IMG.
I want to know what are my chances or how bad is 244? I know its above average but is it good enough considering averages for all specialties is increasing...

Don't be disappointed. That is a good score. 244 is not the average. According to FA 2016 the the mean from 2015 was ~230 not 240. You are well above the mean. Good luck.
