U should be absolutely fine with these scores for IM. If you pass CS on first attempt and have USCE and US lors there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Apply broadly.

and if in case you do want to keep some back-ups, I am sure FM and Peds would be in-line with your IM application, as well as much easier to get... GL!
