  You will be having the chances, but as you are having less score and an old grad it will be better to have hands-on clinical experience for making the strong LORs and can show that you are clinically active.

  As are having home country residency it will be helpful for the application and if you have gained the rotation in the IM specialty then you will be having better chances.

Also there is still time for getting the invites for IVs, most of the programs start sending the invitations from October.

  I have 24 months of hands-on clinical experience, But what is the impact of having an attempt in step 1 on my application and my chance for an interview.
Is there anyone with similar experience
