Default Upcoming match with CS failure

I am worried about my future with the upcoming match. A while back I found out I failed usmle step 2 CS on ICE and I've been having a hard time motivating myself to continue. I am currently booked for a Kaplan course to remedy the situation and will be retaking it in time for my result to come iin october/November.

As far as the other components of my application, I got 257 on step 1 and 264 onstep 2. I am also in need of a visa. I did my schooling in the Caribbean so all my clinical were done in the us.

My question to you guys is, what is the standard procedure when it comes to applying in September with a failed cs, can iI not submit the failure and then submit it when/if i pass in Oct/Nov?

Also from your experience given my overall application, do I still stand a good chance at matching in family or IM? Will iI still get interviews before my cs comes it if I apply in September ?

Thank you for reading and any feedback would be greatly appreciated
