Default What are my chances ?! Pls help!

I am a non citizen.
YOG 2013 (top 10 schools of my country)
step 1 234
step 2 (prepping .. aiming for 240+)
step 2 CS pass
ALL first attempt
USCE 4 months electives at ivy league University program, 3 US LORs
Going to do 1 month observership at another top medical centre (University based)
Am applying for 2015 match, was wondering if the YOG is going to do me harm since I have a gap in training ( besides the 1 month observership). Is this a red flag? While I have been studying for step 2 I have been taking part in volunteering (non medical), joined the American Red cross and doing volunteer work (again not medical as they need a US licensed physician) and possibly going to volunteer at a free clinic from July onwards. Do let me know if this is sufficient to make up for this gap ???
