Question Old IMG with good step scores

I am going to speak on behalf of my friend here.
She graduated in 2006 from Medical College in Pakistan. Step scores in 250 and CS passed. All in first attempt. She doesn't have any prior USCE and she is applying for observership in hospital in Texas.
What she actually wants to know is if there is good chance for her in Pediatrics or IM due to her year of graduation and no USCE.

She will have good chances if she gets decent USCE and good US LoRs in the specialty she's applying for.

If she does not have USCE or US LoRs here chances are low even with good USMLE scores and the reason is her old grad status.
