Default honest advice

Hey guys, I need honest advice. I recently failed my step 1 exam for the 3rd time by a few points. I am not allowed another attempt (ECFMG rules) until November. I wanted to give myself about 2-3 months to prepare again but am forced to wait 6 months. Do I just study for 6 months? Is there anything I can do to help my resume in the meantime while studying? I don't want to change careers without giving it just one more attempt (especially since I was off by a few points). I know that if I score well on Step 2, I will be able to figure something out for residency, even though it will be tough.

I am posting here because I feel that this category of the forum is more experienced than the Step 1 forum. You guys might know better. What would be the smart thing to do here? I don't know what to do. Advice would be greatly appreciated, good or bad.
