    [USER=256]@FutureMD[/USER] I had a friend who was in a similar situation, he didnt do too well on his usmle stem 1. Here are some things you can consider to overcome your low score (lots of hard work but worth it). This list is not in any sort of order (from high priority to low)

    1) Make sure your CV (Resume), personal statement and all other paperwork related to YOU is top notch and high quality.
    2) Work on Publications.
    3) Volunteer work is very important, this will make you stand out. Look at some good organizations.
    4) You need some good Hands on experience (US Clinical Experience!!)
    5) Attend a few medical conferences, meet people, submit presentations, poster boards etc.
    6) Practice your Interview and Communications Skills (This is critical and a good life skill)

    Let me know if this helps at all.
