Unhappy Step 2 CK score 207

Today I've got my USMLE step 2 CK score report and I'm totally depressed and frustrated
It is 206/77
Is there discrepancy .??
I started in step2 ck and after this bad score I have no power or motivation to do step 1 and step 2 CS .
I was planning for residency in US in internal medicine and my goal to be cardiologist,!
Do u think with this score I can get acceptance?
I feel that I will not continue for the other steps but still I have the dream to be a cardiologist in USA
I need your advice guys? and I need advice from who passed step 1 with excellence
I have very bad feeling I have ever get,,
Please help

It depends on the rest of your application, but chances are very low that you will get Internal Medicine with that score, especially if you are an IMG. I am very sorry to say this, but Cardiology may be out of reach for you. Consider Family Medicine, or if you ABSOLUTELY want to do Internal Medicine, you can try for IM transitional year and try to apply for a PGY-2 position.

Assuming you get a good Step 1 score and the rest of your application is okay...

If you are a US Grad, you will get a residency.
If you are an IMG applying this year, you have a solid chance at a residency.
If you are an IMG applying next year, it will not be easy, but it is possible.

IMG's are being phased out year after year. Timeliness is of the utmost importance.

Get 230+ on Step 1 and letter of recommendation from neurologist with whom you are working. USCE will help a lot.
