Listening US Citizen Caribbean Student Looking for Psychiatry Match!

I am an IMG who went to a Caribbean school. I would like to know what are my chances of getting into a psychiatry residency. I'm a US citizen. I got a 200 on step 1, 236 on step 2 and pass on CS all on first attempt. I will be ECFMG certified by September.
Right now, I am doing biochem/micro research and doing an externship with a FM doctor. I should get a publication within a few months. I am applying this year, mostly in the midwest programs. Do I have a good chance of matching?

Thank you.

Your Step 1 score is a bit on the low side. Restricting yourself to the midwest would seem to narrow your chances even more. I think you will have to apply much more widely to even have a good chance.
