Sorry about the step...Right now I feel the exact same way... I took the exam 1 week ago and am now just waiting for the results. I feel like i was running out of time and like i was marking half of the questions on each block! I hope I passed but I am really scared...I was avg 480 on NBME but i really don't think i got close to that on the exam.

You never can tell, just relax, take a trip. Taking the exam is a big step. Result surprises people, it's possible you will get higher than what you ever imagined.

Sorry about the result. Give it a second try. What are the mistakes you made during your 1st prep? Try to do more questions 'what a lot of people advice'

Sorry about the result. But look at the brighter side. At least you can re-take and have a chance for a higher score... It is better than passing with a low score, your chances of getting matched will likewise be slim with that.
