Default Advice on ob/gyn residency

Hi everybody! I just wanted some advice. I really love ob and want to match in ob. I did bad on CK, didn't expect to do so bad but it happened.
Step 1 224
CK 215
CS Pass (1st att)

I have 3 LOR's, one from a program director of ob, 1 from chairman of ob and 1 from and IM attending.

My other issue is I'm IMG and I need a visa.

What are my chances? I know my low CK score is a huge set back. I applied on Sept 15th but my application was incomplete as I did not have my CK score back in at that time, and i didn't upload my PS and only had one LOR at that time. I uploaded the other 2 LOR's, PS and CK score on Oct 1st. I know its only been 4 working days but I have no heard from anyone as yet and I'm really starting to worry.
