Unhappy US IMG Advice

I'm a (citizen)US IMG attended medical in Pakistan, and graduated in November 2011. Strong LORs from faculty from university hospitals.
Step 1 228, CS Passed on 2nd attempt, CK 219. I have a peads paper published, poster presentation, and a conference presentation. 1 Month Elective at Mt.Sinai NYC.

Community Health Worker
HBV Screening Among Foreign-born U.S Residents
Concussion Investigator
Family Medicine Observer ship
Visiting Physician- Attendee let me examine patients hands on in neurology.

1. Which specialty should I be aiming for?
2. Also what can I do other then taking step 3 to improve my chances of residency in the US?
3. Should I focus my energy on becoming a physician in another country?
4. Or If you think I should give up becoming a physician, what should I get?bachelors, masters or PhD in?
