As long as you're a US citizen and work hard during clinical and get a high step 2 ck you'll match just fine.

Well you can still match in IM, but you will not be that competitive. My adivice is improve your scores in step 2 ck, and do step 3. You have plenty of USCE, so you're fine. Apply to family or psych and you will have solid chances.

my husbands best friend from ROSS last year with 196/201 CS on second attempt got IM in MA. and he failed everything twice.

Having USCE for 4 month counts alot. trust me.

You will have IM for sure.. dont settle for FM or Psych go straight IM, go after your dream.
