No one really can tell what is right what is wrong or what will increase your chances. If you did not start preparing yet, then it is harder to predict anything for you. I am too, old grad, 2005, thought I will give step 1 within 1 year after starting preparation, however it is almost 2 years now, and I still yet to take the exam.
I looked at some residencies and some of them don't even need any observership, some would not count those as USCE, so it really depends.
Take one step at at time. First sit and pass step 1 and then you explore more about obesrverships or externships, most of them will ask your step results anyway. Good luck!
