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.
those scores are nonsense
