  I think it depends on your scores and doing externships/ observerships in the US.

  It is difficult to match but if you have good scores in all the steps and have multiple hands-on rotations will help the application for matching.

  Having gap after graduation will always be a red flag for the application but getting continuous hands-on clinical experience will help to show to the programs that you are clinically active which can help to minimize the gap. Also if you have good scores and connections it will help the application to match.
