Default do I still have chances ?

Hello everyone,
I would like to listen to advises from other People who went through same experience I am facing
I am international medical graduate class of April 2015.
my step 1 score : 215
my step 2 ck score 223
step 2 cs haven't had my score yet but I am 90% sure I have failed
let't suppose it is a failure.
I don't have a green card but I have a work Permit in USA
currently trying to find a research in a big university. let'ts suppose I found one.
I want to apply for the match next year.
DO I Have any chances for Internal Medicine or Pediatrics ?or even family Medicine??
I have read there are programs put 220 as a cut off to accept applicants and passing first times
DO People with same situation as mine apply for those programs? do we even got considered or do they filter their applicants based on step scores and attempts before even looking to their applications ??
PLEASE RESPOND to me .. I want to manage my life and not waste money and time.
I am desperate to responses from people with same experience or anyone who have met someone went through same ??

You still have chances. I would suggest either if you are planning to enter a specific university, go there and work (first for free and then hopefully payed). This will increase your contacts. Also you can try for family medicine. Boost your CV
I am kind of in the same situation, but still no CK or CS/ Step 1 235

Check the reports of match applicants and see the average scores that people got. If I remember correctly IM was between 220-240. Family medicine was a lot less than that, etc etc.
