Listening Passed with 213/89..is this good score for matching

Passed my step 3 with 89 score. Is this good score? my credentials are 85 (2nd)/99/Pass/89, visa req, IM and Ped..no IV in Ped. Also, is any use calling all programs and informing them on result? Do I have any chance in 2011?

Default Send updates to programs

Step 3 score is not useful for matching, it's only useful for H1B visa.

It's a good idea to send updates to the programs, it shows your ambition and persistence

Wishing you all the luck

Star Difficult if you fail in step 1

I am not a expert on this forum. However I can tell you what you can do next. Focus on appearing step 1 again. I failed at first time because I studied independently without knowing what I am getting into. Then I geared up..talk to many people, read forums and study hard. You can reappear for step 1 in March, then 2 CK in July, and CS in Sept. Plan well.. Make sure your medical school has verified credentials by now. My 2011 residency sucked up because my medical school did not verified my credentials. Even after clearing CS, I waited 3 months for that process to complete. This delayed my Step 3 and killed my chances for good IV's.

Failing in step 1 is very bad start, but not end of career. If your CK result is good, it will compensate your step 1. Then it depends on many factors..do you need visa, did you had USCE, have you worked in research, strong LOR's and what specialty you getting into..the most important is 'LUCK'..trust me!

One thing to keep in mind..whatever happens, keep your moral and motivation high. Some people in forums give wrong advise all the time..beware of them. All the best!

Thank you so much for the reply, it's very encouraging, in fact it couldn't have been better.
I feel motivated once again, and will follow what you've suggested.
