Default Dermatology Match for IMG, is it possible ?

Hello, Im an American citizen IMG…. Wondering if there is any chance I can match into DERMATOLOGY residency program in the USA.

Credentials:
USMLE Step 1:256
USMLE Step 2 CK: 265
USMLE CS: Pass 1st atempt

Good letters of REC from pathology from academic institutions in the USA (mayo clinic and UT).
Top in my class in IMG medical school (student of the year)
More than 1 year of US clinical experience in New jersey (OBGYN, PEds, IM, Surgery, psych etc… )

Unfortunately, I currently don't have DERMATOLOGY electives US experience on my belt, so planning to take a year off to try to get hands on in DERM (research, or anything else possible).

Should i even try to keep pursuing DERM ?
Answers appreciated! Thank you in advanced!
