I might not be the best one to advice you but i think it is still ok as other factors such as yog, step2 scored etc also matter... Best of luck!

I'm wondering the same thing I scored 226 I was expecting at least 240, since the exam felt ridiculously easy. I swear I don't know what went wrong

Hey that's very strange coz I ran into a friend earlier and she scored similarly, but she attempted offline nbme and not online so maybe she got a false prediction.

anyway how were ur nbme?

First of all congrats and secondly you're above the national mean so don't be discontented, rather give yourself a pat on the back. Lastly what's done is done and it's no point beating urself down.

Start preparing for your next steps and aim high, and with hard work god willing things will work out.

Wish you the best

That's a good and sufficient score for IM/Peds.. very good for Psych and Family medicine. Don't worry if you're applying for the above 4 branches ..you're definitely good.
