Help No IM Interview yet. Try Peds or Neuro Now?

Hi everybody
I am new to this forum and am in desperate need for advice..
I am an IMG and have applied for IM residency.. But hav not received any interview as yet..
My scores are 230/227/ CS no attempt,passed step 3 and am 2010 graduate.
I have 3 US lors from observerships..
I am freaking out as it's already December and my chances are not looking good!
Is it a good idea to apply in peds or neurology at this time??
I would really appreciate a quick response..
Thanks..

For what i have heard when you apply this late programs think you are taking them as a back up, so i would apply next year, and review the app, maybe you could better LOR or PS, if you go to the IM thread there is people with similar stats with 2 o 3 Iv at least, so there most be something else in your case that is keeping you from taking IV(i think).

I would only apply at this point if you have LOR from the specialty or something in your CV that could justify your commitment to that specialty, so they don't think is a back up, is just my opinion.
