Help Externship and CS together

Hi docs!
I am an IMG.
Need some advice from you all. I'm planning to apply for CS and Externship (USCE) together, so that I can get one time long term visa. Do you think its a good idea? or is it even feasible?
My plan is to apply for CS and get ECFMG letter and meanwhile apply for externship or observership whatever available before the test day. So, I can get both USCE and CS practice together. Is it possible? anyone ever done this before?

I will take Step 1 soon and then plan to do this before taking Step 2CK. SO, will there be any problem while applying for a visa?
I wish to do at least two months externship and then take CS. So, I hope to apply for 90 days VISA.

Any experienced advice would be highly appreciated!

Thank you in advance!!
