Unhappy Lost Hope: US IMG with 80% on STEP 1

I am from the USA, who has studied and finished med school in INDIA

I struggled, I dedicated 8 months, I made notes studied deeply and I did Question Banks, U world 2077 questions all of it, every explanation written in my first Aid, i did Kaplan Q bank, i did my NBME's scoring low first then on # 7 reaching 94% my goal was anything above a 90.....I wrote my Step 1, 8 months of immense support from family and friends....and then I recieved my score of... 80%

I know how competitive the field is....and for an US IMG with score of 80%

I have lost all hope...I have no idea what to do....please tell me REALISTICALLY if i have a future in getting a residency in USA, and HOW.

- thank you

You can still get into FM, IM, or Peds if you get good LoRs
