If you want to get matched in IM, median scores of students who got matched were in the range of 221-230 (594 matched) and 231-240 (582) but percentage of matched applicant is significantly higher for the 231-240 group.

Your score of 193 had only 144 successful matches comprising 26.5% of the total applicants in 191-200 range.

Yet we are not yet sure of the profile of the 144 successfully matched applicants. Do they have publications? Do they have USCE? What about visa status? There are many factors that come into play. But what I'm giving you is probably the most objective data I can give.

You may want to give us more information, if you want people to comment more on your chances.

Or better, check-out the data yourself.

Finally, ask yourself, how important is US-training for you? With that question, you can compute the probability yourself and compare to your chances on your other options in life.

Good luck!

I think you have hope. Try to get >230 on Step 2 CK and do 1-3 months of USCE in psychiatry. Psychiatry is not a highly competitive field but still you have to show interest by doing at least one externship for a good LOR. Good Luck!
