Unhappy Step1 222 .. go forward or not?

Hello guys,
I need some help in here. . i m in my final yr of med school. I took my Step 1 last year (mean was 227) and i got 222, which i know is low . really doubtful if i should go ahead with taking Step 2 or drop the plan. Is there any possiblity of me getting into a IM residency program? one of my senior got 230 on step 1 and didnt get any IM residency .. she got paeds though. is ther any hopes fr me as an IMG?? i have had all varying comments from everyone.. want to have a clear picture..
please advice

Hi Afra,
In this adventure, there is no warranty for anybody (IMO). It's all depend of the energy we want to put in it, and probably a part of chance. Try to get high score in step 2, see if you can do some research paper or some observership or whatever possible to stand out among the candidates, and apply broadly. There is worst than 222. Now maybe ask also yourself what your back up option is, if IM doesn't work...
Good luck!
