Dude if you are planning to do observership in may, then stop worrying about your visa. Its too early. If your purpose of visit is Step 2 CS and observership, then you must show some documents supporting these things like Step 2 CS permit and confirmation notice and invitation letter from the university.

Your main problem is that you have graduated and don't have a job. Its gonna be hard to convince the officer of your non immigrant intent. I suggest you find a job.. like a house surgeon or something like that. It will show strong ties with your home country. Also, in your interview, tell the officer that you want to serve your country, so you'll definitely come back. Show your bank statements, family pictures and stuf to show strong ties with your home country.
