Don't worry! You'll be fine. What do you mean you don't know if you should proceed? Of course you should! This is where your passion lies, right? So don't give up! EVER!

All you have to do now is blow it out of the water for Step 2 CK! Don't worry nor be depressed. I know someone who didn't do that well on Step 1, but they got an amazing score on CK. You know where they are now? Doing their 2nd year IM rotation. Just stay positive and keep going!

Thanks

I agree with this as well. Reevaluate where you think you went wrong with your Step 1 prep and find ways to improve. Also, don't be down on yourself. Be proud that you passed on the first try.

Prep for FM is still a good bet. Trust me even if you do IM, getting a fellowship needs a green card status.
