Default NRMP

If you check the NRMP data your score is within the average required for certain residencies.And your step 1 score is only one aspect. There are other factors that come into consideration such as US clinical experience, Visa, US letters of recommendation , your personal statement and most importantly contacts. So dont give up, study extra hard and get a great score in step2 to compensate and increase your chances.good luck!!

theres no risk, just do step 2 and get some USCE for a less competitive speciality and apply for the match. less competitive specialities like family medicine, psychiatry both require USCE.
