Default Score 235. IM. possible?

I scored 235 in step 1... is this good enough for Internal medicine?
(2011 IMG, need visa) I know there is a nbme report from 2011 that's states that this score is good for Internal medicine but this may be outdated since i've read in other threads that 224 is low for psychiatry (!).
I am looking for a sincere and real straight forward answers... no motivational please.:sorry:

excellent mark for IM. work hard on CK and you will get in for sure.

The reason psych is becoming more competitive is because many people with low marks apply. and with a new trend of some AMG wanting psych, it has become more competitive, since many unmatched IMG who can not make it to other specialties are switching their roads to psych. The IMG who have solid background in psych get in with different marks.
