B1 Visa B1/B2 VISA :APPLY NOW FOR TOURISM TRIP WITH FLY or APPLY WITH STEP 1 RESULTS?

Hi all!
I want ur opinion on the foll:
So my brother has got a cruise trip to usa by the company he works for & will be applying for b1/b2!
Im an IMG from India, grad. in 2004, did a diploma here, n started usmle step 1 prep in feb 2013. Planning to take step1 in July/Aug.
Now my concern is

Scenario 1: Apply fr tour with family!!

1)Should i try my luck & apply for tourist visa?
2)If yes, should i tell/hide that im planning to write usmle?
3)will they know i have applied fr step1 with ecfmg?

V plan to apply as a family( bro, mom & me) .....Im worried that since im single & unemployed,no scores in hand, ill be rejected!!!
But if i do get d visa, i can immediately fly for CS after step1 & dont ve to wait for scores & then apply(3-4 weeks)


Or

Scenario 2:
Should I let family apply, write my step 1 & then apply with scores
!

Default Ties to home country are more important

Wether u apply for tourism or show ur scores
U must have good bank credit and brilliant job
But i think mentioning usmle is better
U can also apply for big conferences but in the end they ll need job and bank account or strong case as family problems ( severly ill parents they are in need of you,etc..)

I am old IMG from pakistan,i have cleared step1 exame with pasing score and officialy i cancelled the date of exame (it wil not counted as having had a USMLE step attempt ),most of my relatives lives in the USA so i havnt any reference problem etc,and i dont have any financial problem.Now i would like to take the ck exame in usa, (refrence or financial points would increase the chances to get the visa or not ? how many chances i have to get the USA visa
Cancelling the exam does not count as an attempt
