Considering the fact that you need to match this year, I would place my safest bet on Psychiatry.
Your scores are good for Pediatrics too, but an attempt in CK might be critically viewed.

Could you tell me if your USCE was hands-on electives or observerships?
3 months electives would place you at a considerable advantage.
You haven't mentioned about your year of graduation, since that seems to be a major filtering criteria for programs.

I would suggest you apply in both Psychiatry and Pediatrics in more than 100 programs at least.
