Default Hi everyone, I need you guys' opinions on my vis issue

Hi, everyone, I'm hesitating about choosing IM or FM right now.
I have two questions which I sincerely appreciate you guys' opinions:

First, I'm IMG, having canadian green card, but no US green card. I want to know of my chance of getting an H1B in Internal medicine.

I graudated within 3 years, 1 US letter in IM, 2 Canadian letters in FM; 2 months US exp in IM; 1 year Canadian exp in FM; step 1: 245, ck 240, cs pass, doing step 3 in Nov

Second, as I'd be OK with either J1 or H1 in family medicine; in order to do so, should I first submit all IM application with H1 only, then submit all FM application the second time changing visa preference to J1 and H1? or does the change of visa preference overwrite my IM application?

your opinions will be much appreciated, thank you so much!
