The score of the Step 1 is not that important (many programs do not pay much attention to it), but number of attempts is. You still have dicent score on your Step 2. Yes, completed Step 3 would increase your chances for sure. The 5 year-post-medical-school threshold is set up for some university programs, but for less fancy programs threshold is about 9-10 years (for example NSLIJ Forest Hills Hospital in NY).The observership better to do in the Hospital you want to get position at, especialy if they offer prematch. Another option is to enter the DO program and get DO degree (it takes 2.5-3years to complete for IMGs). All the best.
