Default So Confused

Hi guys got my ck result and its 235, I'm not that happy with this score as I'm an IMG with a failed attempt on CS but although I have 3 mth of USCE clerkships I dont know if I should continue in this pathway or cancel the idea of USA, I'm really sad about this I was aiming for 250+ to compensate my failed attempt but now I dont know what I should do?
Help me Plz if you know something

You have a great score my friend....in my opinion you have compensated very well...no need to worry. There is no magic number to undo the failed attempt. Its the fact that you came back strong is enough for a PD to match you. You can always explain your failure at the interview and with your score you will pass through most of the filters to be considered for an interview. So chill and enjoy this moment...you are among the few people who are above the mean......whats your step 1 status??

go ahead with step 1 and rock it (i.e. get above 250)

even if you dont rock it, you still have a decent shot

in the end, if all else fails, you always have research

good luck
