USMLE Scores Should I recheck my score?

Hi
I got my Usmle scores. I ended up way below
My nbme. I had 247 in nbme7 248 in 15 252 uwsa. But I only managed 231 in real one
So should I recheck or is it a complete waste of money
Has any one had success in that?

hi,

maybe people dont have that information..because lot of people dont go for rechecking scores. it is disappointing getting a lower score and usually nbme score correlates with real score..however 231 is a good score too..no p.d decides residency applications based on scores alone...

sorry may be i over reacted.can i ask u one thing? does the universities like cleaveland or any reputed universities even consider score scores below 240? i know its a long shot but sadly that was my dream. seems impossible now.
