Listening Go for IM only?

Hi guys
Just got my CS result today: a pass!

Would like to ask whether or not I should focus on a specific specialty, IM, when I apply in September.

Step 1: 219 1st attempt
CS: Passed 1st attempt
CK: Will take Aug 30. Expected score is 220 (1st attempt)
USCE: 2 months 1 LoR each
No research/publications
US citizen

I plan to apply to IM broadly on Sept 25 when CK score is released. What do you think are my chances of matching to IM? Should I also go for FM just in case?

Thank you
