Default Please help me evaluate my profile.

I am an IMG and will apply for internal medicine (IM) match in 2013. I graduated in 2010. My step 1 score is 231(96) and 2 ck is 214(91) and passed cs (all 1st attempt) and going to take step 3 before match. I have 8 weeks of observerships, which is one in a university based program and another one in a big community program, with 2 US LoRs from the university program. I also have 12 weeks of externships with 3 US LoRs from externships. I have a few of researches and oral presentation. I am currently holding B1 visa.

I am concerned about my ck score which is quite low. And I am worried about my chances to match IM.
Do you think I should hope for university based programs?

Thank you so much.
