Default IMG's taking Step 1???

Hey!! Are there any IMG's preparing for STEP 1 ?? If so anyone has any tips ? Because ASIDE FROM A GREAT STEP SCORE what else can I do to improve my chances to match?
Observerships and electives, but, any suggestions on how to enquire about this? I know there is an official list of hospitals that accept IMGs for electives but anything else? The sites won't specificy if I need Step 1 or not to apply (I haven't graduated) and they don't seem to have any requirements list, do I need certain GPA, what are they looking for????

I also know that social service on my curriculum has a lot of weight too, any suggestions? Does it have to be something unrelated to medicine or can it be voluntering at a state hospital or red cross or is it more like about social charity things so to say... Like voluntering at homeless shelters and such. And what if I can't get a certificate that says I ACTUALLY did that?? :I How does it work? Does it have to be an institution?
