  You have good chance, try to gain hands-on clinical expeirence and gain a lot of them so that you will be having a continuous experience and get LORs

  All the advice above is good but does not mention the most important thing.
During your rotations you need to let people know of your intentions. Get a good heavyweight contact and get in the system. Arrive before everyone, leave late, offer to do things others don't want. Just existing there will not count and you could really use a contact to get you in.
Your step 1 score will be weeded out by some filters, that's why you need someone inside.

Do you need visa? If not that is a strong point in your favor.

  I have 204/233, graduated 2015, 2 months of USCE, research and publications. Got 7 interviews so far. I do not need visa. I know ppl wt better scores than me and need visa and have less interviews than me. So if you do not need visa you are totally ok :). Hope it helps
