Answer:
usmle score of 78 is low. you should consider scoring higher in the second step. If you can afford join Kaplan course.

In addition to that, it will be helpful to get some observership /externship positions.

Remember, you have to do the best and leave the rest to God.

top internal medicine programs are looking for step 1 scores of 230 or better.
the average usmle step 1 score for applicants who matched in ophthalmology had a score of 224 those who didnt match had an average score of 206.
Passing score as of 1/16/04 is 182 according the NBME official USMLE site.
The average score is about 214 estimate from the score distribution.
