Question Pediatrics or Pathology Residency?

hello

I'm an IMG with a green card ,, graduated 2008 ,, gave my step 1 on April this year 226/97 . I'm targeting 2013 match but very confused about which specialty to apply to , I'm interested mainly in pathology but my average step 1 score made me think about pediatrics as well but not sure of getting it too . Do you think that I can get any interviews in any of them ? & what is the least score on CK that can strengthen my profile .
Thanks in advance

Thumbs Up Your can make it into pathology

Go get 99, > 240 in the CK
Go do some pathology USCE, such as research volunteer and you can make it into pathology residency.

Your step 1 score is not so bad.
