Default please advice...low score/multiple attemptss..??

hi guys
I am a IMG. YOG 2013.
step 1 - 189 1st attempt
step 2 ck - failed in the first attempt, contemplating about taking the second attempt and totally depends on whether it is worth applying with a low step 1 n multiple attempts in ck
cs - first attempt
interested in pediatrics only.
2 months USCE, 2 US LORs
please give in your suggestions on my case. Is it possible to get into a pediatrics program with these credentials? should I repeat ck?
also if yes how would it be advisable to go on from here? what else can be done to improve my CV?

Thanks in advance.

Def. try another time. Many people would tell you to give up, but it's up it you to be strong and do what it takes. My scores are very low, same as yours for step 1 and just passed with the lowest passing step 2 ck but all from first attempts. I would def. try, if nothing will work out, at least I would know that I tried. You have USCE, which counts. You need to make some connections, try to get volunteer or some other type of job in the hospital that had ped program and try to get to work in that program as research assistant, project assistant to help residents with their research projects, make connections.
