Do you require visa sponsorship? If you do, then you definitely should've applied to more programs. Your step 1 is above average but your step 2CK is pretty poor. An IMG with a very good profile will get invites from around 10% of the programs applied to, provided he/she applies broadly. An average applicant usually gets around 5%. The other problem is you applied in mid October. That's generally too late.
