If it were me, I'd just apply next year. That way, you can even do Step 3 (and that might help make up for the CK attempt) and gain a whole bunch of USCE.

It does seem a little bit you need a visa? And what specialty will you be applying?? Also, do you know any PD's? It's just hard to answer your question without some background knowledge =/
