USMLE Scores Should an average score be transmitted to programs??

Hi guys, I just got my step 3 score report of 220.. I know its an average score and I was wondering if I should transmit the score to programs before the match, especially considering that I hv some university programs in my rol.. Wld they look down on the score and change their ranking of me if I transmit the score or shld I just hold transmission till the match day?? Thanks guys..

Score of 220 is considered good(and not average). American grads on average score 219 and any score above is good. Moreover univ programs are not as fussy with step3 as many (if not all) community programs are. Therefore go ahead and release your score, it should help you for sure.
Good Luck
