Since I am very interested in psychiatry and have been searching and reading most of the residency program website upon that I would say;

your strenght is step3, green card

your weakness low steps, attempts, LACK OF USCE(most important)

Psych they care less about scores in much they value USCE, but having step3 and a green card I believe you do have a great chance in more than 70 programs that dont require USCE.

Will I will tell you something, I have done step 1 , CS and im doing ck next month, i have been working as a researcher for more than a year multiple projects poster presentations , oral etc.. but I am not american nor I do have USCE, by only not having USCE I have lost the opportunity to get accepted in more than 80 programs not including those that require step3 which I dont have also, I hope I made my point clear for you on the importance of USCE work on getting it.

in your case research wont harm it will weight very much as an experience

thank you
