ER Emergency Medicine Residency Applicants?

Hey guys,
I know that EM is competitive and I was wondering if anyone can advise me on a few CV pointers. I have a UK MBBS, an Irish MA and grad 2008. I have been working in medicine since, with 1 yr in EM. I will have a GC by Sept, my scores are step1-221/94, step2- 210/86 and CS (result pending due back Aug).
1) I did a peds rotation for 3 weeks in US with good LOR. Is 3 weeks too short to be meaningful?
2) I spent 3.5yrs working in the US in public mental health as a counselor does this fit the USCE? It wasn't in a hospital, but did involve treating a caseload of patients using the medical model with a doctor heading the team in the community.
3) I have one LOR from peds US, 1 written reference from a US IM Prof about research, but all my EM refs are UK based. Is the written non-EM ref worth anything? Is a ref from my counseling experience in the US written by a social worker worth anything? Distinct lack of SLORs!!!
4) I was wondering if anyone knows of on-line forums that deal with IMG's applying to EM, there doesn't seem to be a lot of people posting about EM in particular?

Thanks for any and all info!

James

Since i'm also interested in EM, I did find out that they have their own LOR, like EMSLOR.
