Default Can i apply for residency this year ?

I am an IMG. I graduated in March 2014. Soon after i travelled to Philadelphia, U.S and appeared and passed above average the CS exam. Then i did electives for a couple of months in NY. I then came back to my home country and appeared for Step 1 exam in April 2015. I got low scores in this exam. But the most embarassing thing happened when i failed Step 2, which i took 3 weeks back. Now i dont know what to do ? I have a couple of observership letters from U.S, should i go there and do that as well as attempt another go at Step 2 ? If i do that, results will come after September 15. If i pass, would i be eligible to apply for residency then ? What are my chances if i apply for only Family Medicine or Neurology ?
Worried and depressed.
