Compare your result to these ranges and see what to do to improve your chances of getting interviews:

Low <18
Average 19-33
Good >33

People in the Low group range usually struggle to get enough interviews to feel comfortable in the rank of order list ROL. That doesn't mean they will not get interviews nor mean they will not match. People in the Average group are little bit more comfortable when it come to earing interviews especially if they are applying to a non-competitive specialty. They are still at risk as many graduates will fall in the Good group. Being in the Good group might give a relatively easy match in non-competitive specialties, but no guarantees in the competitive residencies. I personally was in the Low group and did some heroic measures in the last few months before the ERAS season to improve my score. I did USCE in hospitals that have residency programs, took Step 3 and applied to all the programs that interview people with my scores. I was able to filter the list down to 180 programs in 2 specialties by the aid of two books I got from MatchADoc. I passed Step 3 on first attempt with good score and got 3 US letters of recommendations to help with my application after 3 observerships on the east coast. I ended with total of 12 interviews.
