You must strengthen your application, get some USCE, and of course make connections during your externship/observeship. Try to do better on step 2 CK and CS, and if possible pass your step 3 once you are ECFMG certified and before match. Don't listen to those saying stop trying, if you really love being a doctor, fight for it! Good luck!

I graduated 2011, steps 228, 239 pass CS all first attempt, 2 US LORs and 9 month research.
And after all this, I have only 2 IVs.
Not discouraging you but be realistic, it is a lot of money and effort.
