Question is step 3 really help

hello doctors:
I have sent an e-mail to programs regarding my application
and I asked them about step 3 if I didn't make it through this season will step 3 help me next year and I was shocked that some of them told me they don't look at it !!!!!!!!! now I'm really lost, so what I can do is only research??? or should I do step 3??? is it considered a plus to my application or are the programs look at it or just some of them or what???
I don't want to spend time and money and travel again to US for something that will not help me, please any advise from expert????
did anyone know if any applicant with CS attempts got an IV???
to remind you about my credintials:
IMG, YOG 2011, 232,235, CS 2nd, 3mths USCE

On my last interview PD said that he only invited me because I had step 3 !!! So you never know it could help you someday! If you have time and means of taking the exam just take it, even if it doesn't help you still will be relieved to be done with it!

I agree, there are some websites that specifically say is not a requirement but they could give preference to those IMG's with step 3.
