Well, congratulations on the fantastic score nonetheless!

The possibilities of you getting a spot into a residency program depend a lot on which specialty you are aiming for, however most of them ask for the national average or above (which turns out to be 227). That being said, the most competitive specialties such as IM, Surgery and sometimes FM and Pediatrics have average scores around 245-255.

Look, it's already done. Focus on getting nice scores on CK and S3, and passing CS in the 1st attempt. Good LoR will certainly help. But it's a nice score the one you got there.
