Default High Step 1, Low Step 2 CK

Step 1 score: 240
Step 2 CK score: 216
Clerkships: 3 honors, 3 NH, 1 pass
Extensive research involvement in ENT
Will graduate with a masters in public health (MPH)

I am honestly shocked at the drop in my score, especially since I've done decently well in other areas. My original dream was to pursue ENT and I have planned my whole application around it, but I no longer believe that matching into this area is realistic. Will such a low step 2 score impact my ability to match into other specialties (i.e. OB/GYN or Peds)? Any advice is appreciated.
