Default very low usmle step 1 score

Hi all,

I just received my step 1 score to be 196, . How should I do? I am also IMG and have graduated since 2005. Is there any chance to get a job in states if i can finish my step 2 and 3, with this very low step 1 score?

I have passed only step 1.

There's always a chance. If you do well on Step 2CK, publish some research papers in the US, leave a great impression on some observerships, and keep applying every year, somebody will give you a job eventually. But it's not easy.
