I hate to tell you that's it's very very very difficult for you to get into residency.
You need a miracle.

You need to pass with 99 in all steps
You need to do USCE and get super LoRs
You need connections with PDs

Of course you have them! Why not?

Just do next attempt after you will have good correlation with q-banks like Kaplan or UW, NBME etc.

Just do it

just go for it .and try to figure out what u didnt do last time.thats the KEY.

there are lots of things ,which apparently looks insurmountable but they are not.....they are just in the minds ,and there are folks who break those boundaries its just because of believing in self and taking things as Challenge.if you think any thing DIFFICULT ,then everything can be difficult even taken the next breath.but if leave things on God or nature and just do what u can do, U can make it .....lots ov time thinking makes things difficult
one thing is our wish and one is of Nature s wish ,there is no guarantee even if u r fresh graduate with double 99 in MLE ,that u will get residency,any thing can happen with any one NO ONE KNOWS....I KNOW such folk too who invested some 2,3 years on MLE and when he did nt get his choice program he went back to his country and got it at very prestigious and internationally renowned university.(he wanted radiology and got int.medicine in US ).i know the one who got residency even failing the first time and despite being old graduate.
if you wanna make it you can cuz there are folks who have done it ..you r not the first one.I believe you will make it ..
keep posting ,have great time with a great come back.best ov luck:)

you can make it, but you will need a 99 on steps. Once u get that score it becomes a positive for you - people will realise that you didnt give up and worked hard. If i were a PD i would want someone like that.

But you will be eliminated from programs that have filters for young grads and require first attempt passing.
