    Hi everyone, I need some advice. I am a Canadian studying abroad.

    I have recently received my USMLE Step 1 score and I performed very poorly compared to what I was hoping to get. I scored 218, with the test average being 228. This is very unusual for me. I am studying at a medical school in Ireland and hoping to get a residency in General Surgery in the US. I am normally at the top of my med school class but did very poorly on this exam.

    I am just wondering what my chances would be to get a residency. Any advice to improve my application and anything else that could help.

    All advice is welcome. I would really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch!
