your scores are good..
focus on one stream..
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF IMG mathed in the past years and including this year is in IM....No doubt it is the most IMG friendly..and proves the face of IMG in US medical field.

trying for both ped and meds while adding experience in your CV makes PD's confuse about your determination to the specialty and diminishing your match probability....
one of the most important thing rising for applicant in IM is research activity..specially those needing visa..and good LORs

not really, great scores, open doors to many places. 250+ you are in.

if it is about who you know, than Caribbean IMG would all get matched. but we know that is not the case.
