You will be fine. The average USMLE for peds this last cycle was 228, however, there was a 98.4% match rate.I am worried about my chances of getting into a Peds Residency. I have a low step 1 score (214) and unfortunately only High passed my clerkship. I got good comments from my preceptors but unfortunately missed the cutoff by 1% on the shelf for honors. I have HP internal medicine, and P in Surgery, and am currently doing OB/GYN and Psych is left. I will be doing many electives in Peds during my fourth year and am hoping to do better in my AI. I want to go to an academic program somewhere on the east coast and was wondering what are my chances.

As long as you apply broadly, you should match somewhere.
