  Hi everyone, I've just started preparing for step 1, 6 YOG, have 5-6 publication and some poster-oral presentations, but my GPA is quite low 2.654 ( cause i didnt care much about high scores, which i regret greatly),
i got no prior experience in US so i would like to learn how much will this affect my chance for residency application process and if i happen to have high scores in USMLE-like>250-260, will that help, or should i not even bother? I also heard that deans letter is pretty much about GPA and transcript , so if you help me understand I would be much grateful.

  USMLEs and year of graduation are the most critical
Then , US experience and LORs.
Not having experience, and being an older graduate (6 years) is negative thing, but it is not over yet. If you got low USMLE scores, then will be even more difficult, and you would need in that scenario to stick to any small hospital and do rotations and research with them aiming for residency position at their place.
