1. Am I elligible for an elective?(without taking any of steps)
2.Does externship stand as better as an elective??

Kindly PLEASEEEEEEEEE help me..... I m totally confused..

1. Yes you are eligible. Although less colleges will be available to you without step 1.
2. Paid externships are quite expensive. If youre still a student rather do electives

Electives are better if you still haven't graduated. Paid externships can be costly but a majority of the universities that provide electives for international medical students without step 1 charge huge tuition fees as well.
