Default step1 score 212 :( very depressed

I got my Step1 score 2 weeks ago and was in complete shock for past 2 weeks. Finally, gathered my strength to seek help.

I am an IMG (Caribbean Med school) who studied for 6 months. My nbmes were all in 220s-230s range. I do not know what happened.

I want to rectify my mistakes and make up for my low scores (212). I have more pressure now to do well on Step2, good LORs, do research, USCE, etc. Visa needed. Do not have contacts either. What are my chances for FM/IM/Neurology/Peds/Obygyn? Please be honest and guide me if you can.

I am looking for any motivational stories or miracles where people were able to match. Any guidance, tips, suggestions would be helpful. I need to read and hear more success stories to stay positive.

Please help and if you are in a similar situation, let's start a group to help each other out, stay positive, patient, and motivated!

Scores mean a lot but there are chances for everyone. so stop depressing intimidating and blaming ourself and continue your road. you definitely will and should improve your step 2 score. people fair exams. and still continue to live so go for it.. I started from zero without any hope killing myself about my problems applied without anyone recommending me to do that having visa issue having CS late and now i got 8 interviews.. so just do it. and believe in yourself. but y have t o try to score really well on CK it really helps. even though Step1 matters a lot. y can find contact y can find someone who will help with something but do your part and worry after that when y apply
