I have similar credentials, I am applying to 100, but make sure you do your research in every program so you don't waste your money, try to do the following:
1/3 Dream Programs where historically few IMGs have matched (i.e. Cleveland Clinic, John Hopkins, etc)
1/3 Realistic Programs
1/3 Programs with more than %50 of IMGs so your chances of being interviewed are high.
Good Luck
