Hi!
My advice would be that if you really want it you can make it happen! Since you've graduated you have the option of taking both step 1 and 2 this year!
It's really important to get all the materials you need and start asap.
Step 1 is the most important part of ur application and since u're aiming for IM you will need a competitive score! IM is quite competitive and you need the best scores you can get!
Are you working somewhere already?
If you want I could recommend some books and sources for step 1 ( I'm studying for it right now )

All the best!

I'm actually using the same exact sources! only for micro I chose a book called microbiology made ridiculously simple! It's a bit bigtho and wouldnt rly recommend it if u wanna save time! So kaplan is more than enough!!
Truly wish you all the best!! Let me know how it's goin
Oh! and try and start the application process asap
Takes quite a lot of time to prepare everything and get everything accepted!!

I've heard that for IMG's who have graduated more then 5+ years, Step 3 is almost a must for programs to consider
