Info IMG residency matching chances 2015 and onwards

Hi everyone!

I just want an honest input from everyone out there in the race for residency and also the administrators of this wonderful forum.

I am from India. Just passed my final year. Will start the compulsory internship in 2014 april, will graduate in 2015. I will apply for residency in 2015.

I have a step 1 score of 239/85. I am going to cleveland for a clinical elective rotation at UH case medical centre, case western in neurology for 1 month. I may be able to get some additional experience in nevada via some connections. Will also take CS exam in march 2014.

I have been going through a lot of threads and there are people with very high scores like 250+.... so my question is considering my step 1 score (and assuming a similar score in CK) and the above mentioned USCE (no research), what will be the chances of matching in internal medicine residency programs or neurology programs in 2016?

Please give an honest input with some references.
Thank you.

More precise you wish to know more difficult it is to answer !!
Btw,, I feel you have a fair chance with the USCE you have as compared to many IMG's who dont have proper USCE.
