Default Realistic chances of matching after failing Step 1 and Step 2 CS

My cousin is contemplating on taking the steps again. She took Step 1 and 2 CS in 2010 and unfortunately failed both (as she admitted she didn't study too hard for them). She then pursued training (residency) in Pediatrics in her home country. She asked me what are the realistic chances of matching in if she were to get >245-250 in both the steps (step 1 and step2 CK)? Since, I have no idea, I thought I'd ask on here what the chances were.

Wouldn't the failed attempt on CS be considered a big deal?

She also has research experience (with 2 publications).


Thanks in advance!
