Default Valedictorian. Does it help?

Hey
I have a question.
I am an IMG. Step 1: 251. Step 2 cs: pass (1st attempt) and Step 2 CK pending. Wanna match in IM.
2 months of clinical experience: observerships at Cleveland Clinic and MD Anderson.
I am valedictorian, graduated in 2015 ranked 1st/86.
Does this help or program directors don't care about that since I am an IMG?
Thanks

Home country school grades do count and would make your application look good but that alone might not be enough to be called for interviews. Either way, with your score and USCE, you probably will get calls from decent places anyways.
