Hi

Peds in general is bit competitive for IMGs so how is university programs. You need above 90 scores in general and maybe above 95 for university programs. US LORs may cover the low scores but don't risk it solely in peds but keep IM as backup option. Step 3 usually doesn't affect your chances unless it was a low score then it might ruin your entire application. From my experience with IMGs if your step 1 score 211 is recent then don't do the step 3 before the match as it likely will come back low. My advice for you now is concentrate on passing the step 2 with a higher score, solve mcqs as much as you can, add the step 2 secrets or crush the boards to your menu as a revision tool.
