Question Chances of Pathology Residency!

Hello every body, I have question and I appreciate your advices

I am an 2009 IMG grad, do not need visa.
my scores are 97/86/CS pass all first attempt. Pathology residency was my first choice since graduation, am doing observership of pathology soon in uni hospital, to get LoR, do u think I have chances to match for pathology??? or I need to forget it?
also if I wanna apply for other specialty, fam/ped or internal??? in which one I have better chances?? actually I was thinking about family and preparing my PS for it but I was confused by the requirement of long USCE!!!
please guys your advices can help me in this dilemma!

also I have US LoR for 2 month obsever in Obs/gyn,and hopefully soon I will get one more for fam or peds observership

thanks in advance

Add a good pathology LOR and with those scores you should do it. Apply widely, though, it is a fairly competitive residency for IMG's, with only 50% or non-US seniors being matched in pathology, according to 2011 figures.

Apply widely. Prepare well for the interview too. Only about 10% of those interviewed get offers.
