USMLE Scores What's a good step 3 score?

Most people just want to pass step 3 as they take it during residency, but I was wondering what a good step 3 score is if you want to increase your matching chances? Or doesn't the score matter at all?

If you have good scores in your previous steps then a bad score on Step3 will obviously make your CV less attractive.Anyhow Univ programs have many others things to look at and this is the least thing that bothers them.
Not sure about non competitive programs,but read in this forum only that IMG's in need of Visa should have decent score ie above the AMG average of 217.
