Default Clerkship advice please!!

Hello!! I'm from india. I'm doing my internship at present and I'll be graduating in November 2016. I'm planning on taking step 1 in 2017.

My query is that,
1) How important is USCE for IMGs?
2) Can we still make it to residency with just good scores and without any USCE or LoRs?
3) What are some programs that offer electives for IMGs?

Please help me!! Thanks in advance
